Along the lines of yesterday's post about the Army and reporting of death, here is another case where authorities can't win the positive perception of citizens. New Orleans must move ahead to survive, but in doing so, it will anger tens of thousands of struggling householders. There is no way to please everyone, nor should authorities even try. It's a tough but necessary decision. Were I the mayor of the town, I would be communicating the same message over and over. "New Orleans is rising again." It's going to be a bitter PR battle with lawsuits and perhaps, demonstrations.
