This month’s Harper’s Index contains the following nugget:

Year by which New Orleans is expected to be rebuilt, at the current pace: 2028

Their source is listed as the RAND Gulf States Policy Institute but I can’t find the specific citation.

Anyway. 2028. That prediction sounds about right to me. The girl will turn twenty that year. I wonder how the world will look to her, growing up in these circumstances?

Of course, a lot could happen, or not happen, between now and then.
