New Orleans, Our Pompeii?    
Date: 9/1/2005 3:50:30 AM
Link: Link
Summary:
The Washington Post has an informative article about the recovery effort looming in front of our country. The painted picture begs the question.. should the city be recovered?
City: New Orleans
State: Louisiana
Country: USA
Commentary:
The article paints a bleek picture.

The city is destroyed. People will collect insurance and move elsewhere long before the city has usable land. How many buildings will be condemned? Are we going to clear out an area from the Gulf to rebuild a magnificent city?
Our country's response to this question will make a bold statement about Man's attitude towards Nature, and about our Country's perception of itself in the face of its ultimate adversary. The answer will be both grim and beautiful.
This story of America, The Loss of New Orleans, will last.
