Okay folks, this flood talk it getting really old, especially in Fargo-Moorhead. I'm frankly tired my tax dollars going to bail you guys out. I was in Grand Forks in 1997 when 95% of the town was underwater. Immediately following that flood, Grand Forks and East Grand Forks worked together to build a permanent solution to flooding. F-M has had 15 years and have done very little relative to the time that they have had. Stop relying on the rest of the country to bail you out knowing that next year, the same thing is a possibility. And the risk continues to increase as farmers tile and speed run-off to the rivers rather than catch it in cattail sloughs.

The Red River OWNS the Red River Valley. Let the river take it back. No more money for a diversion project that should just go away. Save the farmland, not the cities that built in the very wrong place.
