Destruction Continues: Compare and Contrast in the LSU Footprint

Here's what the 1900 block of Palmyra Street looked like today.

Here's what the same block looked like just a few months ago - it was dense with movable, historic homes.

The state said it would move houses off the LSU Footprint back in late January, 2011.  Not a single house has moved off the site.  Instead, more houses, like the one below, have continued to get demolished.

1915-17 Palmyra, where Raven and Will lived, was demolished yesterday.  It's more proof that state officials in the Jindal administration will say anything to ameliorate critics...and then do exactly what they were doing all along without changing course.
