Re: Good Piece on NOLA
I agree that it is a good piece overall, but I question the authors choice of words:
"...give people the chance to rehabilitate and restore rather than tear down and rebuild. New Orleans' culture lives in its neighborhoods. If the distinctive housing types and buildings saturated with the communities' memories are demolished, the culture will wither to nothing."
"Community memories" is NOT what those houses are saturated with... :P
