New Orleans Should Not Be Rebuilt, Part 2

The WSJ reports on the failing state of NO schools

David Brooks recommends "cultural integration" in the rebuilt NO.

The media are filled with success stories of people who have been helped to leave NO.

The cost of rebuilding NO is astronomical and maintaining NO above water will be very costly.

The mayor, governor and other officials are incompetent or worse.

Conclusion: huge cost, no assurance that the people who left will return. There is no justification for rebuilding.

All that's needed is to provide some help for the people who need it.
