Mourning New Orleans
Will New Orleans be rebuilt? No. It's time to mourn a way of life, and take and apply some lessons. Check out the archives here for a few highlights of Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans. Lost, a city of the poor, no car required. You could walk, make a little money at the low paying jobs and get by. Houses, paid for, passed from generation to generation. This may not seem like much, but it is enormous. In America, our social fabric is thinner than we would like to believe. The government will not provide, and the damage is too huge for private charities. The way of life is gone. A population is in exile, and the promised land gone.
