Whitley Strieber’s Unknown Country

Whitley Strieber’s Unknown Country
“…At virtually the same time, the House of Representatives, at
the request of the Bush administration, cut 70 million
dollars from the Army Corps of Engineers’ budget for the New
Orleans District. Last year, it essentially ended disaster
planning for the region by transferring the chore to a
private company, IEM Corp., and giving it a $500,000 budget.
Now, it has shelved a study that was to determine ways to
protect the city from a Category 5 hurricane…”

IEM Corp? Wonder if Dick Cheney gets any money from that? Need to dig into this one.

Some Acronyms.

Wouldn’t you like to know what LTU stands for? I am sure you’re just bursting to know. The hairs on your fingers are standing up. Anyway, LTU is a German charter operator that flies to many exotic destinations out of Düsseldorf, Germany. It is much cooler than KLM which stands for “Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij” which means Royal Dutch Airlines. I used to really like American Trans Air, but now it’s just ATA. Their old colourscheme still decorates a tiny fleet of L-1011 that are devoted to transporting American soldiers back and forth between whatever part of the world their country are at war with. Another nice one is BWIA, or British West Indian Airlines, and then there’s the more descriptive FAT or Far Eastern Transport. You won’t see neither at your local Airport unless it Heathrow or Taipei for the latter. There are other more straightforward ones like MEA or Middle Eastern Transport and NWA as Northwest Airlines. Anyway LTU means ‘Lufttransport-Unternehmen’ which translates as “We Undertake Air Transport”. As simple as that.
