[FoRK] Rebuilding New Orl^H^H^HVenice

In all this talk of rebuilding New Orleans; why am I the only one who
seems to believe that they should accept all the water and rename the
city to 'New Venice'?
Decades of (mis)engineering the flow of the mighty Mississippi, allowing
the barrier islands to all but disappear, etc. is at least partly
responsible for the current catastrophe. Why are people so intent on
setting the area up for a repeat performance?
New Venice could be both a world-class city _and_ more in harmony with
the natural realities of the region...
