Make way for the "Carpetbaggers"

New Orleans and environs, destroyed by Katrina and bad government is now being invaded by modern "carpetbaggers." Carpetbaggers are opportunists, and the modern ones don't need the bulky bags of old. Whatever they need they can hold in their "palm."

This article in the New York Times tells of those planning the reconstruction.

Who knows what will finally be built, but one thing for sure:
it'll be too expensive for many of its former residents.

Your last line is a huge fear of mine as well. How will these people ever get their lives back?

I'm sure that's why it has been so difficult to get them to leave, the poor things, in every sense of the word.
