The article focuses on issues related to reconstruction of the devastated city of New Orleans, Louisiana six months after Hurricane Katrina hit the state. It is one of the greatest disasters to hit a U.S. city. U.S. President George W. Bush administration's rejection of the state's preferred plans for rebuilding areas flooded by Hurricane Katrina, including creation by the federal government of Louisiana Recovery Corp. to buy and redevelop broad areas of the city, is a stinging disappointment. The White House is telling Louisiana that it must make do with $6.2 billion in Community Development Block Grants and the workings of the free market before further funds will be provided.
