Get used to it

From an AP article on the flooding in Iowa:
Authorities knew the aging levee near Birdland, a working-class, racially diverse neighborhood, was the weakest link among the city's levees. A 2003 Corps report called for nearly $10 million in improvements across Des Moines, but there wasn't enough federal money to do all the work.

Ten million bucks. That's half an hour of the Iraq war.
