The Sacrifice

Owen Courreges at Uptown Messenger tracks the latest national media narrative concerning New Orleans.

[T]he media has been presenting this event as a matter of the Atchafalaya Basin being flooded to save New Orleans. This is a narrative we’ve all heard before – that others are unfairly made to sacrifice for flood-prone New Orleans. We heard it time and time again after Hurricane Katrina from those naysayers who argued that we shouldn’t rebuild.
