Report: Gray Line's Katrina Tour Sells Out

According to an Associated Press report, Gray Line New Orleans' bus tour of the Katrina devastation sold out to the extent that the company added a third tour on its first day. The tour, called "Hurricane Katrina—America's Worst Catastrophe," includes visits to Canal Street and its many boarded-up buildings, and features residents who recount their own hurricane experiences. According to the AP report, reaction in the area to the tour was mixed, with some finding it exploitive and others saying it will "help people realize the extent of the damage."
