Fixed But Still Underwater
It seems sad that so many people have lost homes in Louisianna, but they are fixing and pumping. My question is this: Are they going to move back to a place that is below sea level? Is that really a wise place to have a city? Doesn't the recent catastrophe indicate something about the stability of the area? Well, it doesn't seem wise to me, when there are many other places to have a city, to choose such a dangerous position. I imagine many people will relocate after this, something that would have been easier prior to Katrina. I could hardly believe that land value in the city wouldn't go down steeply after this.
