I completely agree with 'G'. I returned a few days ago from almost 4 weeks as a volunteer in one of the most devastated areas which was not New Orleans. There are hundreds and hundreds of businesses in that same area which employed more than the 3000 you are speaking to and thay will never recover.
Just one example. A guy who had his own construction company with 6 houses under way - every thing gone, totaly gone and the same with his home, his headquarters and all his equipment. He said "I couldn't have had enough insurance to cover it all".
A lack of info is an embarrassing thing.
(I had to come back due to a severe infection aquired while there - will return)
