Thank you for sharing, Nancy! I will certainly be at one of the meetings
tomorrow and I strongly urge others to be at one of them too. Speaking only
for myself, this seems like exactly the kind of massive, misguided,
environmentally destructive project that the Army Corps of Engineers loves
to build and has a long track record of building. And once projects like
this get started they are hard to stop. There is a less destructive
alternative included among the options, and those of us who care about
preserving our coastal areas need to show up to advocate for it.
