Don't let it go

I am tired of hearing people say that New Orleans shouldn't be rebuilt.

I couldn't disagree more.

What happened to New Orleans is awful, it's true. And it will take a lot of time, effort and funds to rebuild. But I refuse to believe that it's a good idea to write off one of the oldest, coolest, and most culturally diverse cities in our country.

And I also refuse to believe that we don't have the technology to figure out a dam/dike system that could sustain New Orleans should further hurricanes present similar problems as Katrina.

Maybe we should take a look at the polder system in Holland to see if it could work here.

But we just can't let New Orleans go.

There is too much good food to be eaten, good music to be heard, and good times to be had.

And don't give this "where are we gonna get the money to rebuild?" crap.

We can find the money.

We always do.

Yes! If we can find money to fight, we can find money to make ourselves whole again.
