    That's a lot of work for regular people who don't own bulldozers.

    "The Lower 9th Ward and other nearby New Orleans working-class neighborhoods are primed for recovery, with the majority of storm-damaged houses structurally sound despite being flooded 16 months ago, according to a report released Saturday by the community group ACORN and its Ivy League planners."

    Well, that sews it up for me!

    It really is. They are rebuilding week by week, people go to work, bring their paycheck home, take whatever they have left after necessities and go to the Home Depot to buy wiring, nails, roof tiles, what have you, to get one more step close to having a house again. Many are living on 2nd floors which didn't get floodwater while rebuilding the bottom floor. The mold is a huge problem. I have a friend from H.S. who does mold removal and he's been putting in 80 hour weeks since they opened the city back up.


    Despite the slow pace of recovery, I think in a decade or so New Orleans will once again be the magnificent city it was before - despite the words of discouragement from self-righteous pricks like Trobinet.

    They should save all their reciepts. Maybe they can get some of the cost of materials back eventually. Maybe.
