On 4/05/07, I linked to Matt McBride's Fix the Pumps site, where he had posted photos of undersized hydraulic flood pump pipes that were rusty, corroded and duct-taped. Matt asked: "Are we supposed to have confidence in a system that isn't even protected from the moisture in the air?".
For over a year, that seemed to be the expectation.
Until last Friday, when the USACoE finally admitted that Rusty Pipes are Bad. (The pipes will be made rust-free, but they'll still be undersized.)
There's almost a Spinal Tap level of ineptitude--"Are we going to do Stonehenge tomorrow?"--to this and pretty much anything else from the administration...
Too bad it's not just a movie.
YRHT preview: I'll be making a Spinal Tap reference in an upcoming post on the Bush adminstration.
Don't everyone get too excited.
But are they as clean as PBJ's pipe? Larger surely but cleaner?
