8. Just don't let them design any levees . . .

I hope they have some expertise in pumping out floodwater, but please don't let them design any levees. The COE designed the levees that failed during Katrina. And they were responsible for rebuilding those same levees after Katrina. Multiple times during the reconstruction, contractors were caught filling the new levees with garbage (old appliances, paper, etc.). COE was supposedly inspecting the levee reconstruction on an on-going basis. Just sayin' . . .
