A politician visits the Louisiana Fire Swamp

August 28, 2005: Congressman D.P.R. Westley and New Orleans Times-Picayune reporter P. Buttercup are walking along a New Orleans levee, conducting an interview about the decision to only allocate funds over the years to reinforce the levees to withstand a category 3 storm.

Buttercup: Westley, what about the H.O.U.S.'s?

Westley: Hurricanes Of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist.
