No Money for Rebuilding

One thing is brutally obvious from Katrina: New Orleans must never be rebuilt. It would be throwing good money after bad to rebuild a city that is below sea level, and bringing in enough fill to raise the area and jack up the buildings to match would be insanely expensive, particularly when the next killer hurricane could hit next year - or next week - and is inevitable in the long run. Better to bulldoze, cart off the wreckage, and return it to nature.

And the police and National Guard need to start shooting. Now. Before it gets completely out of control and thousands more die in the bloody, mindless violence of starving, thirsty people.
