    Another issue, for those that do want to get back, is the greatly inflated cost of renting or real estate. I know it's a free market, but it almost feels like price gouging; where once the cost was quite reasonable to live in this awesome city. I hope it's just temporary, as I fear it could drain the city's soul. As to the bureaucracy, corruption, and cover-ups...it's sickening and there is so much the general public will never know.

    Congratulations seem like a funny word to use, so best wishes with the Fema Cottage and moving forward thereafter. Any luck with the local publishers?

    Still working on it Cameron. I am making a "proof" book or whatever you call it to show. Will let you know if the project goes any further

    Real estate is robbery in NOLA and its surrounding area. House are selling for double what they were worth last year. Some banks refuse to lend money on these inflated homes, not worth the investment. People are asking the bank for 350k for a home appraised at 250k.

    Yeah, it's ridiculous. If more people are to come back, and thus speed up the city's recovery, housing needs to be reasonable and commensurate with the jobs available.

    I know your working hard on the project...can't wait to see the end results. I'm sure there will be positive rewards in one form or another. take care, cameron
