That's just WRONG. As much help as NO needs, all this provides is a few short-term construction jobs. Most of which may be filled with people "foreign" to the state of Louisiana.

There's no way the Hornets should get that paid for when the state of Louisiana and New Orleans need so much more in other services. Hell they still can't afford to pay the police or the basic local government services in New Orleans. Trash is piling up all over the city.
