evictions in new orleans 

I'm purely disgusted. Landlord's are salivating at the idea of taking another step toward the gentrification of New Orleans (check out the interview on Democracy Now if you want some background on the whitewashing of the city).

Here's the story:
Landlords are expected to begin filing eviction requests with the courts immediately. If they're successful, they can clear out abandoned apartments and move tons of molding, waterlogged belongings to the streets within five to 10 days. In some cases, the landlords alone can make the decision to evict.

What the hell is wrong with these people? As Laura Tuttle, a lawyer with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services says,

"That is somebody's life in there: pictures of their babies and school photos ... you would want a chance to save it."

Why do they want to start evicting now? Because "imported workers could live there." I shit you not. Imported workers. Haliburton's underwaged employees. Damnit!

Native Orleanias couldn't get out of the city before because they lacked the funds, and the ability to do so, so how the hell are they suppossed to get back when Blanco gives the all clear?

Landlords say their tenets are not checking in or letting them know they will be back. Is the government giving them phone cards and assisting them with finding their landlord's numbers? If not, how the hell are they suppossed to call and "check in" with their landlords? This is beyond ridiculous, callous, inhumane. It's purely a shitty thing to do.

Of course, it's all about the money and gentrifying New Orleans. I mean who can forget these remarkable words as reported in the Post

Rep. Richard H. Baker, a 10-term Republican from Baton Rouge. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that he was overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

Actually, you're doing a good job of it with the help of shitty laws and emotional detachment that clearly signifies your break with humanity, you blood-sucking repugzombie.

I apologize for the rant -- I'm ussually a little more coherant, cogent in my posts --- at least I try to be -- but this makes me crazy.
