We need a breakdown of the cost/benefit analysis. Last I saw, the only part of the plan that made any financial sense was the levee around the city of Galveston. The expensive parts of either project protect things that don't need protecting. I realize they'd be spending OPM (other people's money) but we'd have to live in a construction zone for 10 or 20 years and then put up with the maintenance forever.
