Advisory flood maps issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency over the past four months were supposed to help people figure out how to rebuild higher and stronger. But in some parts of the region, the maps have sparked a backlash because they will potentially require thousands of homes to buy flood insurance that did not need to before.

Well, maybe they should all be sent to "Sensitivity Training Camps"(seeing they are already set up) so they can learn to use all their bullets, and plastic coffins with "sensitivity". #-o :angel: :mrgreen:
