"What is New Orleans Worth?"

Caught up with the "60 Minutes" piece on No other authority than professor Tim Kusky. Dire conclusions unrebutted. And, in a companion video, correspondent Scott Pelley says, after ticking off the double-digit billions that will undoubtedly be required to build the levee system that New Orleans (he doesn't say this) had been promised years ago, it all boils down to the question, "What is New Orleans worth?"
Thank goodness we're not wasting hundreds of billions on a war based on faulty intelligence, or we'd be exposed as a natiion of fools. BTW, what is New York worth?
