Re: “The Big Uneasy

While the entire city of residents was displaced, the Corps of Engineers worked very hard with an expensive PR company to blame the failure of its system on the weather.

But as noted by Gaye Tuchman, distinguished sociologist and author of Wannabe U, "one should always look behind language that would seem to attribute calamity to unpreventable weather. This vocabulary,” she warned, “denied human agency. It minimized the individuals and institutions whose actions could often be found hiding behind all the talk of water and wind."
