HUD Secretary says Future NOLA Response Will be Much Faster

HUD chief foresees a 'whiter' Big Easy: The Washington Times

"A Bush Cabinet officer predicted this week that New Orleans likely will never again be a majority black city, and several black officials are outraged.
Alphonso R. Jackson, secretary of housing and urban development, during a visit with hurricane victims in Houston, said New Orleans would not reach its pre-Katrina population of '500,000 people for a long time,' and 'it's not going to be as black as it was for a long time, if ever again.'"
