Nonprofits' role in Rebuilding New Orleans

I wrote about the rebuilding process here, and here.

I want to recommend this blog post by Becky Houtman, a New Orleans neighborhood activist, to anyone interested in the operation of nonprofits more generally. Basically, as a local person she's arguing for local input in the huge science project that is New orleans, and points out that in general nonprofits' record of promoting democracy and reaching out to the public is less than perfect.
