It’s a challenge to figure out how many people have come back to New Orleans. It is hoped that the 2010 Census will really help southeast Louisiana get a more accurate count.

In the meantime, one of the key measurements is the number of addresses receiving mail. On this trip,more than any other, I’ve been seeing mailboxes in locations where its obvious no one is home (at least not at that address).
