FILE - In this Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005 file photo, nearly two weeks since Hurricane Katrina hit, floodwaters continue to cover parts of New Orleans. Humans have an affinity for water. But in these recent jumbled days, the collapsed houses, flooded subway tunnels and washed-out roads left in Sandy's wake remind us once again: Our deep-seated human desire to be near the water _ to be attracted and comforted by it, to build alongside it and crave its attractions _ has an undeniable dark side.
