SFGate Poll 9-05-05
Yesterday’s SFGate online poll posed the question, “Should New Orleans be rebuilt at the same location?” When we last checked, 2,076 people had voiced their opinion. The results? 49% responded, “Yes, with a better levee system, there’s no reason not to” while 51% responded, “No it’s a colossal waste of money to rebuild below sea level.”
We’re left wondering, would the same 51% respond, “No it’s a colossal waste of money to rebuild near a fault line” if the question was, “Should San Francisco be rebuilt at the same location following a major earthquake?” Doubt it.
