    The greater good? Wound a few thousand instead of a millions? Sometimes there are decisions that are truly win/lose. Sorry for those who are being flooded but, I believe that the city of New Orleans should compensate those who gave so much and lost all they had so New Orleans could escape the disaster. What is fair is fair and New Orleans needs to get out the check book.
