Another Government Bailout of Idiocy

From here:
When Kathy Wiebold moved into her ranch-style house a couple years ago, people assured her it wasn't in the flood plain and had never flooded. So she didn't purchase the extra insurance.
OK here's the thing for dipsticks like this: if your house is on a flood plain then not only is that a good indication of the likelihood of flooding, but it also means there's a good chance that your house is more prone to water damage since it's downstream from all the other dry land.

I'm sure what worked into her decision though was that she figured if the flood was that bad, then some ex post facto government insurance would be on the way.
