As readers of this blog likely know, the LSU/VA footprint is located in a much larger footprint, the footprint of "The BioDistrict."
Here's a good point about a lack of public awareness about the BioDistrict project from a letter in the Times-Picayune today:
'Readers have been privy to stories about chickens in the Seventh Ward, nutria couture and Nicholas Cage's French Quarter exploits, but we have not seen a single piece on a neighborhood organization's effort to escape "BioDistrict New Orleans."'
The local media really should do a better job of ensuring that the public knows more about things like the BioDistrict. The same goes for many aspects of the LSU/VA undertaking that haven't been covered over the past year.
