failure is success!

I just caught some administration water carrier trying to explain to a cable news reader that the situation in New Orleans is an indication of how successful the efforts to protect the city were. You see, the levees only failed at one small area but held strong everywhere else even though the hurricane was much stronger than what the levees were designed to withstand.

It's sort of like if one of your tires blows out as you cruise down the highway at seventy miles an hour, sending your vehicle careening end over end, destroying it totally, and killing some of the occupants. It's actually a success because of the three tires that didn't blow up on you!

Don't you feel more at ease now?
