    ...I prefer "corporate", or even better, "corporatist".

    "Traditional" has overtones of being justified by long use and experience, and brings to mind vibes like turkey at Thanksgiving and summer picnics.

    "Corporatist", on the other hand, is much more truthful--these are protofascist institutions whose purpose is to shill for criminal transnationals, not to convey truth in a "traditional" manner or otherwise.

    Except for that--great diary.  I live on the Gulf Coast and am watching this disaster with considerable trepidation.  Thanks for the information--disgusting, maddening, but not unexpected.
