Civic Duty: New Orleans is known for its tours, whether of stately mansions or Ann Rice vampire landmarks. With much of that gone, the tour busses are taking visitors to see the devastated areas in the city. This has caused some controversy, as some residents don't want their personal pain to be on display.

But the tours should go on, not just for the economic boost they could provide, but the opportunity to show people first hand how bad the mess really is. If morbid, thrill-seeking, rubber neckers -- like me -- are going to venture down to gawk at the death and destruction, someone in New Orleans should make a buck off it.
