Okay this is a little far fetched, but I'm curious what you all think about entertaining the idea of New Orleans (after the flood waters receed) being turned into the national jail?  Similar to the ideas of John Carpenter's Escape From New York and Escape From L.A., could this be a viable option to the ever increasing problem of where to put criminals?  Just build a huge wall around the city now and drop in the people.  The advantage to Louisiana would be they'd get a nice chunk of money from states wanting to drop in their criminals.  Those states would benefit by not having to keep up the jails and/or prisoners who are in them.  Maybe even keep them small, housing the small time people while shipping off the hardened occupational criminals.

After the waters receeded, the gov. just drop off cleaning supplies and the criminals letting them have a go at it.

Like I said, just a thought.  I'm not sure it this should go here or in Exploring the Universe.  Feel free to move.
