New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was a Republican, after all.♠
Here is one take on how New Orleans is lagging behind in reconstruction after Hurricane Katrina. Maybe they are allergic to the word "reconstruction".
My solution would have been to shift the population and shops inland, to higher ground, and connect them to the port by high speed rail. Something about Proverbs 29:18 comes to mind.♥
