Do you predict the return of most of the NO evacuees? Ot do you think that the new housing that wil be built will be occupied by "new" residents?

A majority are already back..just not all are yet able to live in parts of the City that flooded. We're at a metro population right now of 1,250,000..only 100,000 less than before the storm and it's climbing quickly. With the winning of Nagin, it certainly makes it much harder for the poorest blacks to return to the City. Nagin is not pro public housing. The poorest blacks best friend, Mitch Landrieu lost and this likely leaves many of them to set up home wherever they are now, IMO.

So the 150-200,000 evacuees who have been living in the Houston metro have returned for the most part?

Most have...but, as stated, there are a great number of evacuees that have been replaced by newcomers who have filled the gaps in the economy in the last few months.

I just hope that NO, does not get swipped by another Katrina-like hurricane before the dams could be upgraded. NOA predicts a very active season. Even more so than last year!

Voting Nagin back into office was a mistake he completly failed them the first time and had no evacuation plans and then they vote him in again? The vote must have been rigged he must have cheated there is no way that people are that stupid.

It's called wealthy, Uptown, Republican money....they got behind Nagin full force in the last 7 days. They refused to let a liberal Democrat in office...regardless of race.

Sadly, despite all that's transpired over the past year that should have been a wake up call, some old New Orleans traditions remain unchanged...Of course that same could be said of many cities.

im glad nagin won....many of the scoundrels that were living here need a new change of venue. hopefully the courts wont allow the same criminals loose time and time again as in before. you had a free system where people committing armed robbery or even murder getting slapped on the wrist.
