Comments: FEMA...what's the problem? Holy Cross threatening to pull out of its plans to relocate if it doesn't get its way. WAAAAH! The building has backers that think it can be salvaged. They've shown the interest is there and the money set aside to destroy it would go a long way to repair it. If Holy Cross is so interested in their historic school they need to rebuild their historic buildings in 9th Ward. Please don't tell me that Holy Cross didn't have flood insurance. Why is FEMA even considering funding a Catholic Prep school? Strange situation and even stranger entrenchment. There is no reason that both entities can't exist on the site. There is no need for Holy Cross to build a new church for the neighborhood....were they really going to? Put their football field there. Don't let Cabrini be torn down.
