It’s been five months since I walked the streets of New Orleans, yet New Orleans is still a part of me. However, we are coming up on the fourth anniversary of the natural/political/engineering disaster that was Katrina. Four years later, it remains the low point in terms of the esteem with which I held our then “public servants.”
But, things move on. New Orleans is coming back, although it is looking a little different. There was a very enlightening article in the Times-Picayune from Sunday: http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2009/08/the_katrinaimposed_exile_of_ne.html
More as the Katrina anniversary approaches.
