Shelley at Burningbird has some good background on the rebuilding effort to come.
One of the things that Bush, faux-southerner even more than I, seems to have forgotten, is the curious will of the South, and its will to reconstruct and rebuild I think. It's been done before, and it will no doubt be done this time. Hastert's backtracking or not (thanks to AZ for the pointer on that).
As a letter writer (coincidentally from Chicago) to the Times aptly pointed out this morning
