The Road Not Traveled

This is the link to the famous post by Richard Posner where he brought up the topic of a fraction of New Orleans being preserved, like Williamsburg, as a historic monument not connected to a city.

It is a reminder of how the dialogue has progressed from whether we are going to be recovering to the how and when [and who]. It is somewhat depressing to read, but in a community where the refrain is "... months later and nothing has changed." One thing that has changed is the question is not whether we are going to be Dodge City, but how we get back on our feet and aim for world class.

Have a productive weekend.
