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.


“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.”
