I've thought about blogging about Hurricane Katrina, but I can't really think of anything to say. The more I think about it, the more I don't understand. I can't fathom why helicopters can't drop off cases of bottled water. I understand pretty much everything being destroyed somewhere beneath all of the water. But I can't understand why people trained in emergencies can't help. The richest country in the world, and we have people dying. Sure, Katrina and her aftermath stole lives, but surely some of those were preventable.
Here's the most visual story I've read. (Yes, my natural instinct is to read newspapers even online before I watch the TV.)
