It wasn't revealing to me because: a) I've seen it before -- early 80's when the Saints played in Houston under Bum and one other time...late 80's or early 90's under Mora - it was exactly the same deal. b) Reggie hype - it was the 25 wearer's first chance to strut in our faces ... for one quarter at least, c) half of New Orleans still lives here.

Play well and there's a strong demand for tickets in your home market (from the home team's fans). Don't play well and there isn't. Nothing revealing about that.

Katrina displaced more people than what you saw on CNN. It wiped out the town of Slidell. That's where most of the people employed at NASA Stennis Space Center and Lockheed's Michoud Assembly Facility live. They are scientists, engineers, techicians, and their families not welfare folks. Many are still without homes.
