Bring Back New Orleans Commission to issue report...

According to this article in today's New York Times we can expect to hear from the Bring Back New Orleans Commission later this week. This is the group established by Mayor Nagin to develop a blueprint for the rebuilding of the city.

Indications are that the group will come up with some bold plans. Some recommendations will involve redesigning a school system that had the reputation as one of the worst in the country. There will also be recommendations involving transit, including the development of a light rail system. They will propose the closing of a major canal involved in the flooding.
