Christian Science Monitor Writes Story On LSU/VA Hospital Project

While the piece, which appeared online today, focuses on the house moving - one of only two moves where the owner went "with the house," the piece does get to some of the stark realities:

"Soon, this area will be flat as a prairie. Everything that once was Lower Mid-City is being dismantled, including the streets, lampposts, curbs, electric lines, and sidewalks."

I should note that this piece is not just a reprint of the AP story that I noted earlier today - it's a separate article that the Christian Science Monitor wrote, which just happened to come out on the same day (although interestingly...people working on the story for the publication were in the VA Footprint weeks ago).
