I heard on the radio today that the city government was letting some business owners back into parts of New Orleans this week. Aren't these the same people that were allegedly removing residents, that wouldn't evacuate, at gunpoint, just last week? Will they please make up their minds. I guess it can't be all that unhealthy in New Orleans for the business owners, but not healthy enough for the hard cases that didn't want to leave.
The mayor said that New orleans was beginning to recover "culturally" and then went on to discuss lower priority items like actually letting people back in and getting the power on and cleanup. What a strange set of priorities. The guy is probably the victim of a bad sound bite, but that is what radio is for.
