What is New Orleans’ future?

What is New Orleans’ future? The Sunday NY Times has a story that captures that confusing place where debates often lead.

Quote:

“At one edge of this city’s future are the extravagant visions of its boosters…At the other extreme are the gloomy predictions of the pessimists….Somewhere between these unrealistic visions lies a glimpse of the city’s real future a year after Hurricane Katrina, say many planners, demographers and others here who have been deeply involved in rebuilding.”
