Year Zero in N.O.

Diane Farsetta has a interesting report on how rightwing think tanks, working in concert with GOP congressional members, are salivating over the "possibilities" presented by a complete overhaul of New Orleans.

For a foil, check out this interview with Mike Davis, the excellent urban historian. He provides a way of thinking through the Katrina mess that works as a sort of antidote to the pablum coming out of the Heritage, AEI, etc.
