Happy New Year!


As I mentioned in yesterday's post, those of us keenly interested in the rebuilding of New Orleans are always on the look-out for positive news. This article in this morning's Times-Picayune is encouraging.

According to the Times-Picayune article people are returning to New Orleans in greater numbers than had been predicted. That is not to say that the city has turned the corner. Most of the residential areas are totally unhabitable...and it will take a very long time to rebuild some neighborhoods. Nevertheless, the news that people are choosing to return is a hopeful sign.
