Good News from New Orleans

I'm not the usual kind of tourist New Oreans gets, but I loved the D-Day Museum. I only got half-way through it when we were last there--I was going through all the details and the rest of the family was done with the whole thing and wanting to leave just as I got to the Pacific Theatre side. I've wanted to go back but haven't had the chance. With the floods I figured I might have lost my chance (even if most of the exhibits could handle being soaked in salt water). But they're reopening the museum already, after repairing a quarter-mil in looting damage (but no flood damage). We'll have to see how hard it'd be to get there when I'm in Baton Rouge for the holidays.
