Censor this, bitches.

The Brookings Institution (Quality. Control. Independence. Echo-chamber. Impact. Misdirection.) keeps rejecting my comment on Pat Mulroy's blog post, so here it is for you all:
Too bad Pat left off the part about people in Las Vegas using over 200 gallons/each/day (that's 4x the use of people in Sydney or Amsterdam or Monterey California) as well as the part about the Colorado River Compact's overclaim on the river (17.5MAF when average flows are closer to 14MAF), thereby ensuring that people -- using their "rights" -- kill the river every year. Oh, and is it worth $1billion to build that "last straw" when Vegas -- and the region -- is on the path to doom?

I expect rational discussion from Brookings, not self-aggrandizement from a ex-water manager who put citizens' future at risk.
Bottom Line: You can't hide fail, especially when it echoes
