A Year Of Katrina: Shep Says New Orleans “Is Still Trying To Find Itself”

shepaug29.jpgYesterday on Studio B, Shep Smith described New Orleans as “a city still trying to find itself and wondering will its residents ever come back.” He said:

“There were 460,000 people residents of this city prior to the storm. Now the postal service estimates that number is down to 171,000. The mayor has a different figure; the postal service however seems most accurate. Of those, half the doctors of the city have left; four out of five of the psychiatrists have left. Why? Why have they not come back? Part of the reason may be there’s not a single master plan for this city. No master plan for redevelopment. No master plan for infrastructure. It hasn’t been put together and there are no signs that it will be.”
