Josh Trevino, aka Tacitus, is leaving RedState, and returning to his old stomping grounds. He argues here what I don't have the intellectual confidence to propose - both the abandonment of the site of New Orleans, and the controlled breaking of the Mississippi levees in favor of a new main channel through the Atchafalaya Basin.
Unfortunately, Tacitus-the-group-blog always suffered from a voluble and overpopulated community, which made for a lot of noise. I kind of stopped paying attention to it once Trevino moved over to RedState, and the last time I looked in, it had been mostly taken over by the leftist gadflies which had once been Trevino/Tacitus's loyal opposition. Well, I'll hang out for a while, see if it's worth sticking around now that the master of the house is running things again.
