Errr, isn’t this the kind of house we are supposed to build? A solid raised house with an unflooded top floor. This must be worth more than a vacant lot?

    Dear Road Home:

    Give people homes to come home TO. Do not destroy these homes before it is resolved whether displaced New Orleaneans need them or not. MAKE SOME SENSE! You need the houses more than you need the buldozing jobs to hand out.
