Will be light blogging as we get situated in New Orleans. We touched down at noon and have done a quick tour of the 9th Ward, Bywater and other hard-hit communities. We've also paid visits to one of the main center for the Common Ground Relief network and the NOLA office for Community Labor United.

Signs of definite improvement, with many towering piles of debris removed and individuals getting to work on their homes. But the main story is still of a city left behind.
