Rebuilding

New Orleans and who we are. I’m guessing we’ll rebuild it too. It’s not like New Orleans is some new town like Superior, CO or Colombia, MD. It’s New Orleans! Nor is it like those places in CA that keep getting hit with wildfires or those towns along the northern Mississippi that keep getting wiped out. It’s been around a long time. Apparently the French Quarter didn’t get the brunt of the floods and that’s where the re-building will take place.

  1. Hmmmm..not sure I agree with the Captain, and I think this is the first time I could say that. I think the decisions to build 8 or more feet below sea level are maybe not good ones. Why set ourselves up against Mother Nature for more loss of life and human suffering?

  2. I agree it doesn’t make sense, but we’ll do it anyway. Why do we live on the seashore at all? What is Florida doing populated or California for that matter. New Orleans has been around a long time and is steeped in history. I say rebuild. Only better.
    Bigger levees would have saved a lot this round. Now those little towns in MS, I can see not rebuilding, EXCEPT, that’s where those people own land! You bet I’d rebuild.
