Commentary on Katrina

There is so much to say about what’s been happening in the Gulf Coast and New Orleans regarding Hurricane Katrina, the levees breaking, and the government’s response. And I have my own personal feelings of loss in the face of such a huge tragedy.

But for the love of God, you must watch this video. Keith Olbermann of MSNBC calls it like it is.

I’m disgusted, horrified, saddened, heartbroken. I love that part of the deep south, lived in Baton Rouge for 2 great years, and became an adult there. It is unfathomable that no one knew this could happen. Unfathomable – because we, a bunch of librarians who know nothing of structural engineering, talked about it all the time.

  1. Thanks for the link. I can always count on you to provide me with a person on the cutting edge, able to say what I am thinking and feeling, with all of the fervor I think I am communicating.

  2. Keith O. had another terrific editorial statement (?) either one or two nights after that too. Admittedly, never watched his show before all this, but now I look for it.
