In Brief: Re-Rebuilding in New Orleans:
Over at Susie Madrak's place, Suburban Guerrilla, she brings us a story of the Joseph family in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans whose Katrina-broken-levee wrecked home was almost completely rebuilt before it was burned down after an abandoned car was set aflame near it. Tulane University medical students have put up a website called Project: Bring Miracle Home to get donations to help the Josephs re-rebuild.

The fundraising's been slow. Compassion fatigue, one supposes. The Rude Pundit's already tossed in some money. Considering that the first phase of the entire rebuilding plan for New Orleans has been scaled back to a fifth of its first size, every little bit helps.
