Where’s the Public?

A couple of my informants, and I can’t say who they are, but suffice to say that they are involved in the decision-making process – mourn the lack of public involvement and outrage these days.  They say that four years after Katrina, the public seems to have forgotten about flood protection.  With the U.S. Congress flagging under “Katrina fatigue”, it is all the more important.

Is this true – do New Orleanians have “Katrina fatigue”?  Why aren’t people out on the streets and at public meetings calling for flood protection?
