Response to Fearless (Reply #37)

59. This SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED in New Orleans.

It's probably too late now as the residents have dispersed all over the country.

I wonder how many of them can even claim ownership of the land. Knowing the way things went I picture the city confiscating their claim on the property because they left. It's why so many tried to stay. They saw this coming.

In a just world Habitat For Humanity would have been deployed and thousands of construction jobs would have been created rebuilding all through the entire South. This would have created jobs all over the country in manufacturing as new appliances and plumbing and even nails were ordered, not to mention lumber and roofing. Quarries producing raw materials for concrete and drywall, the truckers delivering supplies, and then there's all the warehouse workers and office people needed to process and track everything. It could have been amazing.

Instead,...it still looks like this:



BTW: The residents have a message for those who think it would be cool to drive through the area to see the devastation.
