When it comes to living below sea level, keeping levees in good repair, and generally coping with having more than a useful amount of water around, nobody can beat the Dutch. So it's pleasing to learn from my newly discovered Americophilic Dutch blogger that not only has the Dutch Red Cross set up a special account to receive donations for relief from Hurricane Katrina, but a Dutch dike inspection team is on standby.
If anyone makes a wisecrack about "dike inspection teams," I'll...probably laugh.
