is the term I use to describe what happened in post-Katrina New Orleans. The poor, black, and largely Democratic neighborhoods remain in ruins, their inhabitants litterally flushed out of the city (and the state). As perhaps the only cohesive progressive voice left in what is essentially a good-ole-boy state, I am glad to see the Jewish community rebuilding. But I hope they don't forget their fellow ex-slaves, who still stand watching from the far bank of the river.
