National Media Piles On

Since our last post, a number of national media outlets have turned their attention to the harsh realities of the LSU/VA Hospitals site - the consequences of not re-using Charity Hospital.

Here's a compilation of links to articles that have come out in the past three days:

"I don't want to go back to New Orleans since they took my house," he said. "I hate it. - Wally Thurman"
 
 
"one of the most controversial urban-planning projects in New Orleans since hurricane Katrina."
 
 
"But while the wrecking ball is swinging, the project is $400 million short on financing, according to Louisiana's own projections"
