Almost Half of Residents to Return to New Orleans

I thought my opinions were pretty optimistic, but it would appear not to be so.

"The city of New Orleans ... will start to breathe again. It will have life, it will have commerce," Nagin said.

Nagin outlined a plan for 182,000 residents to return to their neighborhoods over the next 10 days. Businesses can return this weekend in the central business district, Algiers, the French Quarter and in uptown.

So this city of 500,000 will see 40% of its residents going back to their homes in three weeks, not five. And certainly not 90 days as stated repeatedly by the press.

When do we get that congressional panel set up to investigate the press? They did a criminally negligent job of coverage.
