Just in Case

I don't finish the long-winded version, or you don't feel like reading it:

Media attention is not federal aid.

Main quote fom that last link:
The passage of the bill has become increasingly important to Louisiana because the state lost out to the greater political power of Mississippi last month when Congress passed a $29 billion aid package for the Gulf states region. The package gave Mississippi about five times as much per household in housing aid as Louisiana received - a testimony to the clout of Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, a former Republican National Committee chairman, and Senator Thad Cochran, chairman of the Appropriations Committee.

The additional $4.2B didn't even come close to making that even.

Do you have any idea how the GO Zone Money is being channelled into projects, such as High Rise Buildings to increase density in a City that has been losing population BEFORE Katrina.
No, I really don't know much about that subject. That's one more area that I wish I had learned more about when I was unemployed. Have you posted on it or linked to any good posts on it? I haven't come across much on the subject at all.
I have not seen much information. This, to my mind is driving the Condo market. I will send you whatever I can find.

No technical information but ..
the link works on the Library Chronicles
