Sac. Bee: "The entire country should take note of this cartography"

The Sacramento Bee writes that FEMA is about to release new flood zone maps for New Orleans:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which the Bush administration has turned into a bureaucratic albatross, possesses enormous leverage in this process. Next month, FEMA is expected to finally release new flood maps that will determine where and at what elevation New Orleans homeowners can rebuild. The entire country should take note of this cartography. Billions of dollars in federal relief dollars hinge on FEMA's decision.

FEMA needs to release these maps without delay.
