AS NEW ORLEANS turns from a natural disaster to a human disaster, some are asking the farsighted question: Should the city be rebuilt? House Speaker Dennis Hastert yesterday told a suburban Illinois newspaper that on the issue of federal assistance in rebuilding New Orleans "We ought to take a second look at it. But you know we build Los Angeles and San Francisco on top of earthquake fissures and they rebuild too. Stubbornness. " Hastert is now facing some harsh criticism for suggesting that the Big Easy should be allowed to remain a big pond.

Ben Crenshaw converted a fast start into a 5-under-par 67 and a 2-stroke lead yesterday in the third round of the $500,000 USF&G Classic in New Orleans. Crenshaw birdied three of the first five holes, sinking a 20-footer on the 5th. He also dropped a 25-footer for a birdie on the 10th, then played the last eight holes in par. Ronnie Black was second after shooting a 69 for a 203 total. Tom Watson, a two-time winner in New Orleans, moved up with a 66 that put him in a four-man group at 204, 3 shots back going into today's final round.

MANY OF the plans for rebuilding the Gulf Coast beg the question, who decides? Who pays is also important. And so is who gets paid. But the fundamental "who decides?" question will determine the answers to all the others. Pundits have now offered just about every possible option for the rebuilding, including exactly as it was, no rebuilding at all, a Key West or Venice tourist museum, a 21st-century model city. I favor the Venice strategy. It seems the best way to face all the competing realities, including preserving the historic areas, which were least affected by the flooding and will be the most missed by the world; creating, largely from scratch and on higher ground, a modern economic metropolis to exploit the advantages of sitting between the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico, and restoring the Delta ecosystem to help tame the consequences of the next big storm.

Levan Alston, the point guard who helped Simon Gratz win the Public League boys' basketball championship last season, yesterday signed a letter of intent to attend the University of New Orleans. Another area player, Kevin Lewis, a 6-foot, 11-inch senior at Glen Mills, will sign a letter of intent tomorrow to attend the University of Rhode Island, Glen Mills coach Tom Mann said yesterday. Lewis played only three games for Germantown High last year before leaving the team and has yet to play a game for Glen Mills; he attracted college attention while playing in the Sonny Hill League this summer.

Spike Lee's When the Levees Broke may not be the most joyous gift you could give this holiday season, but it might be one of the most important. The three-disc set is not only the most personal account of the unnatural disaster that hit New Orleans, it is also the most complete. Lee's documentary, shown on HBO, is as much an indictment of local, state and federal officials as it is a tribute to the people of the Big Easy and their endurance in impossible and horrific circumstances.

We're planning to visit New Orleans soon, and have two questions: How can we tour the cemeteries there, and what's the weather like at this time of year? B.S., Elkins Park New Orleans' cemeteries are famous for their above-ground crypts, necessary because of marshy ground in the delta city. The structures and inscriptions can be very interesting, and some of the cemeteries hold dignitaries. Among them are St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, 400 Basin St., with the remains of Etienne de Bore, the city's first mayor, and Marie Laveau, a 19th-century voodoo queen.

At area theaters. The Big Easy" is New Orleans. You know, the town where "dancing's a way of life. " The town where "folks have a certain way of doing things.

The Eagles were determined to upgrade at safety in the offseason, evaluating one of the best free-agent classes at the position ever. But the team did not target two Pro Bowlers who played for Chip Kelly-coached teams at Oregon. Instead, the Eagles pursued Malcolm Jenkins, a former first-rounder who was not re-signed by the Saints. When free agency opened, they signed Jenkins to a three-year, $16.5 million contract with $8.5 million guaranteed. Kelly said the team thought Jenkins "was the most versatile in that class.

NEW ORLEANS Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is close to joining the ownership group of the Philadelphia Soul. Colston owns the Harrisburg Stampede, a franchise in the Professional Indoor Football League, which is a lower level than the Arena Football League in which the Soul plays. Colston's ownership share in the Soul couldn't be determined. The 31-year-old holds every significant receiving record for the Saints, and was a key player when New Orleans won the Super Bowl following the 2009 season.

THE OFFENSE could sense the defense tiring as it continued to push the pace on its first drive of the second half. Following an 8-yard completion, 11 players hustled toward the line of scrimmage to snap the ball on a crucial fourth down. No time for substitutions, the same 11 defenders on the field for third-and-9 remained for fourth-and-1. The dizzying tempo made them late to set, the ball was snapped and the Eagles' most dynamic addition to the offense introduced himself to Philadelphia.

A PLAYER'S first game with a new team in a new city can make for a memorable experience. To that end, Malcolm Jenkins envisions his Eagles debut tomorrow as transpiring nothing like his introduction to the NFL 5 years ago. It came during the Saints' season opener at the Superdome after, on the second play from scrimmage in the second half, starting cornerback Tracy Porter went down briefly with an injury. So on third-and-6, New Orleans stacked the box and blitzed Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, leaving the just-inserted Jenkins, a 21-year-old rookie, to attempt to blanket Calvin Johnson all by himself.

Darren Sproles could not contain his smile. He did not want to reveal what Eagles coach Chip Kelly has planned for him in the offense this season. He would only say that his preseason totals of nine carries and three catches were not even a glimpse of what's to come when the Eagles open the season Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "We haven't shown anything yet," Sproles said. Teammates volunteer praise for Sproles. The 31-year-old veteran is a diligent worker who fits in the Eagles' locker-room culture.

The first reminder we're starting a new era of college football: The national championship game won't be at the Rose Bowl or in New Orleans or Miami or any other site of the traditional big bowls. On Jan. 12, everybody will watch the action from the place Jerry Jones built, AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas. Probably around midnight, a champion will be crowned, and the first year of the new four-team playoff system will be in the books. Those four teams are as far as the sport's powers (i.e., the power five conferences)

EVERY TEAM tries to get better, immediately. The question is: Since they walked off the field after their playoff loss to New Orleans, have the Eagles improved themselves? It is impossible to tell. For one inescapable reason, it is impossible to tell. Oh, they have taken logical and prudent steps toward improvement in every avenue. Sometimes improvement means adding young players. The Eagles did that by drafting receivers Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff in the second and third rounds, respectively.
