Now Playing: Alex Robins--"Annabelle"
Watching the news is really hard going for me these days, but BBC World probably has the most indepth and interesting coverage of the disaster currently taking place in New Orleans. I'm off to give right now, and if any of you find yourself in a position, please give to a charity that'll send money where it's needed if you haven't already.
I haven't read "Altercation" in a while, mostly due to post-election depression, but the recent discussion on Katrina and the New Orleans debacle is tremendously worth reading, especially the reader comments. And this is pretty appalling, though hardly surprising.
Good news: I got an email from my friend Monica, who lives in New Orleans and with whom I haven't corresponded in some time, and she was safely evacuated.
