Link removed due to some people's browsers not being able to display it.

This article describes some of the rebuilding of a New Orleans street, what is going and mentions that rent prices may increase from 225 dollars a month to over 600. That is a huge jump and most residents cannot afford that.

Educational Hijack.

Tinyurl.com and makeashorterlink.com can help with that. For example, http://tinyurl.com/hel8y = that big one you've got up there. This is excellent for emailing long URLs too, as email programs sometimes add a line break that ruins your hotlink.

Or, for snopes.com posting, you can use the Full Reply Form to post and click on the URL button to put your link behind a word or phrase, such as "Click here"

Happy to help!

ETA: Posting a shorter link in a new post doesn't do anything to fix the page width problem. You have to go back and edit the problem post.

Thus endeth the hijack.

Didn't know if to make the above a new post but it does show a depressing fact that people don't recieve enough money to buy a new house or even repair their house in New Orleans. I knew the suicide problem was incredibly bad in New Orleans but it is nice to see a bit of news attention to it.
