    the soup bowl:

    I've been wondering absentmindedly, after some useless querey attempts on google (so dominated these days by recent news/blog results, nts: find a new search engine), how it came about that so many poor and working class families ended up building in the soup bowl, sub-sealevel areas of NO anyway. Kevin Carson notes some interesting items on the subject, such as:

    Most of the African Americans who were herded into the Superdome came from the infamous New Orleans projects and are descendents of those evicted from their neat little homes in the working class district that was seized and bulldozed to build, with public funds, the Superdome. Their cemetery was also destroyed. Construction began in August 1971 and was completed four years later.

    Irony noted. This post to be marker as future background items come up, should I happen across them.
