Getting ready for the next Katrina:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The leader of the city's effort to recover from Hurricane Katrina unveiled a $1.1 billion plan Thursday aimed at jump-starting the sluggish revitalization work.
The plan focuses on 17 zones throughout the city, from busy Canal Street to the hard-hit Lower 9th Ward, city recovery director Ed Blakely said.
Rebuilding a major city below sea level that was devastated because it was below sea level. What a country.
