+1. You want to live on the river bottom along the Mississippi, you want to live behind a levee below sea level, you want that high-risk spot on the beach along hurricane alley then you should assume the risk. To keep rebuilding these spots and paying so someone can be stubborn and stupid about risk is a pisser.
