International Airport in New Orlean reopened for cargo

The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport reopened for cargo traffic on Sunday and there will be limited passenger service beginning Tuesday, the airport's director said.

Roy Williams said he expects about 30 departures and arrivals of passenger planes a day at the airport _ far below the usual 174. Williams estimated that the airport's closure has cost the New Orleans area economy $40 million (Ђ32.2 million).

Domestic carriers will be the first to return to the airport, Williams said. International carriers will have to wait, in part because of hurricane damage to the international concourse's roof. Williams estimated that the airport is now housing about 5,000 recovery workers. Many of them have been sleeping in the baggage handling areas and will have to be moved as airport traffic picks up, he said.

Meanwhile, officials of businesses in the New Orleans central business district will be able to get temporary passes into the city starting Monday so that they can retrieve vital records or equipment needed to make payroll or otherwise run their businesses.

The idea is to allow employers and business owners access to payroll records, hard drives or other items business owners might need to try and set up shot outside of New Orleans, said Johnny Brown, a spokesman for the state police, AP reports.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
