New Orleans' Lakeview neighborhood - 14 months after Katrina

They can put a man on the moon
But the government just can't manage to fix New Orleans
Clicking inside a pic will make it much bigger
Go all the way down in this blog to the first Katrina pics I snapped last year
The difference? Now there are signs from capitalists offering to tear down your house or suck out your mold
The Army Corps of Engineers seems to have done something to fix the 17th Street Canal levee, from which tsunami-like flooding obliterated the upper-middle-class neighborhood of Lakeview. There were no storms this year to test the improvements, and, of course, there's nothing and no one left in Lakeview to protect.
