Re: “The Hurricane Katrina anniversary can bring on depression, PTSD

They alternative to ignoring the stories of our shared Katrina tragedies is to ignore the conditions that brought them on and, inevitably, repeat them. This is the policy of the flood risk deniers and their belief that flood risks are overstated and flood insurance is to burdening and expensive. This, of course, is the belief of out commercial special interest who made untold billions refurbishing our City and plan to make greater amounts when it happens again. These interests are vigorously supported by GNO Inc, the City Council, the Chief Resilience Officer, the Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance and both of our US Senators.

Continued denial will invite a repeat of Katrina which remains as probable as it was in 2005 and portends devastation of more than just future mental health. It may not be the most comfortable thing to do but we must confront reality at all costs is we are to survive as a city. The IPET's finding that we were a "system in name only" rings as true today as it did 10 years ago because politicians have refuted that and every one else has ignored it.

Re: “John Barry: Free at last

Although it's almost too much to hope for, I expect the remaining Authority members to stand their ground and continue to support Barry's and the Boards position regarding the suit. Nothing less than replacing all independent members with Jindal/oil company stooges would be honorable.

I too look forward to Barry's non-profit effort coming on line and will do all I can to advance its interests.
