Finally. Long overdue. Those who argued for further delay … well, I'll hold my tongue.

Twenty-one years? Really?!?! I remember the south half of our block being under water in '98. And the poor souls in Sierra Court having most of their homes under water.

I remember the City functionaries patting themselves on the back and congratulating themselves on the great job they had done and then their shocked looks when resident after resident raged about losing all of their worldly possessions to a flood that could have been prevented by proper flood control and the yearly cleaning of a drain pipe that crossed under 101.

Twenty-one years. Wake Up Politicians!!
