Much of New Orleans still resembles a ghost town...

This photo is a grim reminder of Katrina's devastation. With the sun rising in the background, a house lies crumpled near a levee in the Ninth Ward. A year after Katrina devastated much of New Orleans, parts of the city still resemble a ghost town.

Tonight football fans will tune in to ESPN to see a packed Louisiana Superdome cheer on their Saints. A big celebration is planned for the reopening of a building that was once the scene of horrific suffering. Hopefully, viewers tonight will not forget "the other New Orleans" that is reflected in this photo.
