Why Are You Still Living Near the Red River?
Did you know that the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota is flooding again? Are you shocked?
Why are people putting up with this? Either fix what's wrong or don't let people live in the flood plain of the Red River. Or, how about this--make damned certain that this is the last year of flooding by raising taxes in North Dakota on all of those oil fields in order to fix the Red River in a system of artificial lakes or in a containment system of dykes.
Four floods in five years ought to be enough to make people change their strategy of dealing with problems such as this.
