For­get fool­ish wall, fix flooded Houston

The Day - - OPINION -

I say for­get “the wall” and fix Houston.

I also ref­er­ence a quote taken from Eugene Robin­son’s com­men­tary from the Wash­ing­ton Post fea­tured in The Day on Aug. 30, “Na­ture is scream­ing, but who’ll lis­ten?”

“Build­ing, mean­while, can be made more flood-proof. Pres­i­dent Obama signed an ex­ec­u­tive or­der re­quir­ing builders who re­ceive fed­eral funds for a project to ac­count for the risk of flood­ing in their con­struc­tion plans. Trump re­scinded the mea­sure, say­ing it was ‘job-killing.’ How many peo­ple went to work in Houston to­day?” Jane Price New Lon­don
