Rent Check

Nearly everyone has something to say about New Orleans' rising rent and this week WWNO's Listening Post project asks, Is Housing Affordable in New Orleans? One response: "Since Katrina the rents are out of control. A shotgun half a double that l wouldn't give you 400 for prior to Katrina, in a bad neighborhood, now runs 1200 dollars a month! If it wasn't for my friend renting me what l got, l wouldn't have been able to come home! This is highway robbery...For what they pay around here rent should only be between 5 & 700 per month for a half a double." [WWNO]
