Mississippi flood coverage.

More excellent coverage by the NY Times today, with a nice graphic here. Article here with a quote from Galloway:

“We told them there were going to be more floods like this,” said Dr. Galloway, now an engineering professor at the University of Maryland. “Everybody likes to go out and shake hands on the levee now and offer sandbags, but that’s not helpful. This shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”

Durbin and Obama are calling for meetings with the Secretary of Ag on crop impacts.
