An Inconvienent Truth.

"There is not enough public housing for the poor in New Orleans," is a lie. But it's convenient lie to those who are getting attention by chaining themselves to the fences at HANO headquarters today. Chaining oneself to a fence for the poor makes one seem noble and compassionate; but chaining oneself to a fence for a lie is just silly and pointless.

Just how "actions" like this will get the poor housed any faster is beyond me.

Also, take a look at those "protesters" in the image - do any of them look like, well, displaced housing project residents?? Didn't think so.
