Nov 12th 2010 7:53AM Terrible waste. Whether it was making money or not, I can't believe it has taken almost 6 yrs to start a cleanup project. Six Flags has been making money for years at all their parks with their overcharging for food, drinks, games and ticket prices. To let this wasteland stand after so long is a travesty.
This devastation wasn't just about Katrina as you can clearly see the vandalism that has taken place. Unfortunately is does not matter where you live or where you are from, disasters of this nature always bring out the worse in people and also the best in some people. I applaud the people who have been able to rebuild their lives and have moved on. As for myself, after seeing the destruction I don't know if I would have the heart to rebuild because it would never be the same as I remembered it. It's like going back to a place that you once cherished as a child and seeing it through the eyes of an adult and it not looking as wonderful as you remembered it.
N.O. is a part of our history and I for one hope the people of NO continues to rebuild, not just as a place to live but a safer place to live starting with a complete refurbishing of the riverbank walls to better protect the city in the event of future flooding.
