More Katrina Stuff

There is a blog - Voices of New Orleans - that is a companion to a recently released book. Anyway, I suggest you check it out. And I also wanted to expand briefly (I promise) on a comment made in the Blockade entry. Rex Noone points out (as have others) that President Bush spent a mere minute on the hurricane ravaged Gulf coast in his State of the Union address. And okay, it's a big old country and that isn't the only thing we should be worrying about. But just step back a moment, and imagine it was a State of the Union being given just a few months after September 11th. Do you think less than a minute would have been spent on that tragedy?
