Maroon reports, mischaracterized public housing movement

The Loyola Maroon reported today on the demolition of public housing in New Orleans.

Mr. Hultine's article, Bill of Rights, a piece mainly on Bill Quigley (Loyola Law), was spot on. Glad to see that Quigley has his tenure to protect him and that the University is honoring it.

The second piece, an editorial entitled Housing Issue nuanced, mischaracterized the public housing movement, ignored the many voices of reason who have advocated for 1:1 replacement of residents in the new housing, and ultimately came to no meaningful conclusion about the issue.

Both pieces are ripe for letters to the editor.

They report, you decide.
