“Because a man’s home is his castle ...”

As this is written, governors in states around the Mississippi basin had the most difficult of decisions to make. In order to save major cities like Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana, and Vicksburg, Mississippi, the flood gates had to be opened in select areas to relieve the pressure of rising flood waters, sparing the major cities, but destroying farmland in the surrounding rural areas. That did not deter a few brave families from the ultimate of undertakings. For those who succeeded (as seen here), and for those who have failed, we give this week's Tip of the Black Hat. It is they, not the governors (however justified they may be), who embody all that is good about the American spirit.
