A slimmed down New Orleans?

The BBC takes a look at where New Orleans is, from a scientific standpoint, in its quest to figure out how, or even if, it can be rebuilt and sustained.

It's a fascinating article. Since the money to rebuild the city likely will come from taxpayer monies, it's one that every American taxpayer ought to read.

It's not so much a matter of not having a New Orleans. There will probably always be some portion of the city remaining. It's a question of how big a city it will be allowed to become. And emotional arguments really don't hold water, excuse the pun.
