jefferson parish moves forward
The fuzz decided to allow Jefferson Parish residents to briefly return to survey their properties. The people had better plans. Today, the authorities admitted that they can't possible arrest all the people who claim they are going to ignore orders to vacate again by Friday. With power and sewer returning, stores began to open and people realized it is time to rebuild. I suspect these New Orleans' suburbs will be the first to fully recover since the people have physically taken back their town. It will be interesting to see how long it takes New Orleans proper to figure out that you don't have a city without citizens and do the same. So long as they keep treating the die-hards as nutcases, I'm afraid the rebuilding of New Orleans will take much, much longer. Once the water is gone, it is in the best interest of the city to allow people back in.
