Section 8 "controversy" in New Orleans

Kudos to Ann Duplessis:

“We can’t keep hiding behind what we think is politically right to say,” said State Senator Ann Duplessis, who said that was why she took up what she referred to as a highly important, but highly controversial issue: to limit the development of new Section-8 housing units in Eastern New Orleans, something critics think is a way to keep poor, evacuated New Orleanians away from the city

Section 8 is a well known disaster, a vestige of LBJ’s war on poverty, which has done nothing but create a market for poverty. There should be a moratorium on public housing in NOLA until murders go down to, say, less than one every two days.
