Mark A. R. Kleiman: Rebuild what?

An interesting discussion about what a rebuilt New Orleans would be like. Mark A. R. Kleiman: Rebuild what?:
If we could get it back for a lot of money, the New Orleans of the last century and last month might be worth buying. But the best we can get for that money now is almost certainly not 'New Orleans' as we understand the name, and whether that outcome is worth what it will cost is, as Speaker Hastert perceived, not at all clear.

When DC and I vacationed there we had a great time just walking around. The city had great character. The article makes a convincing case that this will be gone even if the city is rebuilt.
