So how’s that whole rebuilding-New-Orleans thing going? The lede of this WaPo story says it all:

New Orleans can be rebuilt, or so they say.

Just ask the mayor’s commission. Or the governor’s commission. Or, wait a bit, and see if the congressman’s commission flies. The city council’s commission was even unveiled with something important missing: commission members. But it was trumpeted as a commission nonetheless.

As this once-flooded city is flooded anew by commissions and subcommittees and study groups, the operative question is becoming: Who the heck is in charge here?
