What's entirely missing this time?

Over half the city's residents rent their homes. At least, that was the case before Katrina. Yet, neither the mayor nor the city's daily newspaper seem to care about 53.5% of the population.

Mayor Nagin:
Everyone has a right to return to this city, especially if they own property.

A couple of weeks ago, I noted that the Picayune's editorial against raising the homestead exemption barely noted the fact that raising the exemption would almost certainly lead to higher rents. The Times Picayune didn't mention it at all in Saturday's editorial.

As a renter, I just feel so unwanted.
