Now comes the real challenge. For Levees.org’s request to be officially reviewed by the Obama Administration, and to receive a response from the President, we need 5,000 signatures.
It’s a challenge because Whitehouse.gov is not the most user-friendly site on the web.
To sign the petition, it seems you must register, verify, change password, sign out, sign in, and THEN click sign.
We quite agree it’s a tad tedious. But we also feel it’s a small thing if it gets the attention of the President!
Please click here to sign the petition asking the President to stop calling the New Orleans flood a ‘natural disaster.’

In their usual style of making communicating with POTUS easier, the White House has added a few hoops, some snakes and ladders, one deep rabbit hole and a Kafka Mountain to jump over for your trip through Open Government.
