David Korn sums up all that’s wrong with the Administration’s response to Katrina. Also: some fairly disturbing stuff about race and class in contemporary America.
Hurricane Katrina shows that the Bush administration screwed up bigtime and that it must adopt an energy policy that is serious about energy-efficiency, renewable energy, and global warming
I’m not sure what I think of Bush critics on the post-hurricane relief efforts. Would fewer have died in a Kerry presidency? Even more than shock at the scale of the catastrophe, what I feel is simply amazement: how could it happen here?
We’re resigned to annual Bangladeshi suffering during monsoon season. Hurricane Jeanne and Haiti didn’t make the front page in US newspapers. But these ghastly scenes, straight from the Third World, here in the US? Unbelievable. And unbearably saddening.
