Vitter straightens out Corps confusion
By CityBusiness staff report



METAIRIE — Sen. David Vitter, R-Metairie, today reaffirmed his position on Mississippi River Gulf Outlet with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. After the conference call, Vitter made the following statement:

“I really think we’ve gotten the Corps back on track. They assured me today that deepdraft navigation through MRGO is off the table and they are focused on the important restoration work needed to replenish the wetlands MRGO has destroyed. That’s essential to protect St. Bernard Parish and New Orleans East in particular.�

The Corps also promised to include business relocation costs in its recommendations and consult extensively with state and local officials.•

Now on to more important matters.

Like "the most important issue facing america today?" He was referring to Gay Marriage: The Threat.

I went to high school with Vitter. He was a n idiot then and remains so to this day.

loki,

You say you went to high school but your blogger profile says that you're 40. Unless you were a child prodegy, I don't think that could have happend since he was born in 1961 and you in either 1965 or '66.
