~I haven’t spoken about this issue for awhile but every now and then a reality check is needed. I would like to tell all my local friends that no one really wants you to run your own schools. New Orleans is now the proving ground for any charter program looking to show its value and we made it that way with years of failure and neglect.
We have no one to blame but ourselves.

BP oil spill fines may not flow easily to Gulf Coast states~Bruce Alpert~The toughest criticism of the bill, which could generate billions of dollars for the Gulf states, came from Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, an influential subcommittee chairman. Gibbs said, the federal government already has spent billions of dollars on flood control after Hurricane Katrina, particularly in New Orleans, and the area already receives a share of royalty payments for off-shore drilling.
When he testified, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson, "corrected the record," saying Gulf states won't begin to get serious revenue sharing from offshore development until 2017, and that percentage won't be 50 percent, as Gibbs said, but 37.5 percent. Others said that the high cost of flood-control efforts were because of the failure of federally built levees, which caused most of the post-Katrina flooding.
