The New York Times falls down on this flood.

As this historic flood moves through the Middle and Lower Mississippi Valley the paper of record gives us articles like this, here with my annotations.

Nothing about why this flood happened, no history, no science, no informed analysis.

Nothing that might prevent the suffering the article describes from happening again.

Wow. And you would think the New York Times would have the power to make many phone calls and, you know, perhaps fly down to Louisiana and do some real reporting. And maybe interview a scientist?
