Asleep at the wheel??
Why in the bloody hell hasn't the Coast Guard or the Corps of Engineers or whoever the hell has control over this, shut down river traffic??
Do these assholes have any idea of what the wake from these monsters does to already-flooded homes??!!
Not to mention this is dangerous as hell. There's all kinds of crap floatin out in the channel...big crap...whole trees, fer chrissakes. Some you can see, some you can't. And some of these barges carry gawd knows what...all kinds of chemicals, gas, oil. Wouldn't that be just peachy if one of those got tangled up with a tree?
Anybody remember the Exxon Valdez?
