Protestors at HUD office.

Here is a new development in the public housing crisis in New Orleans...sort of. Protestors apparently blocked off the entrance to the HUD offices downtown for a brief period of time. Performing an action that freaked out reporters enough to put it on the very front, and top, of for a period of time.

Check it out here.

It seems that despite the protests, and despite HUD and HANO's plans for the projects there still is not any reasnonable alternative, besides the 80% cutbacks, to the pre-katrina public housing system. Even the protestors who want the projects restored do not present any reasonable alternative .

I think someone needs to either come up with a plan, or "throw us a bone" here.
