New Orleans Heartbreak Update

I've updated my prior New Orleans post here, with further photos and commentary. I'd also add this link from the current New Yorker Magazine with one New Orleanian's thoughts of his hometown. It's late, I'm tired, and perhaps there will be more to say in the morning, ahh....make that later this morning.

Another link here to an Anne Rice opinion piece in Sunday's New York Times. The photo at the left is from that article. She provides an informative history of New Orleans along with an opinion on New Orleans from one who is well qualified to render such an opinion.

Update 3:30 p.m.

How refreshing would it be for an elected government official on any level to admit they made a mistake on the response to Katrina's aftermath---apologize for that mistake, and ask forgiveness of the affected victims? And, what's the likely of such an unlikely scenario?

Update 5:30 p.m.

According to the President's mother, Barbara Bush, things are just working out very well for the New Orleanians evacuated from their city. They are so enthralled with their new homeless shelters in the Houston area, they are going to move there. Her quote, from press reports is:

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (she chuckled)--this is working very well for them."
How understanding of Mrs. Bush of those poor underprivileged folk. By the way, just how would she know? The Bushs have been out of touch with reality from Bush I all the way down to the current Bush President, for decades. All that pretend Texas front can't cover up that life of East Coast privilege and blue blood background.

Along the same lines, the current President Bush revealed the same privilege outlook handed down byhis parents. Thanks to Radio Saigon for this observation and press account:

THE PRESIDENT: We’ve got a lot of rebuilding to do. First, we’re going to save lives and stabilize the situation. And then we’re going to help these communities rebuild. The good news is — and it’s hard for some to see it now — that out of this chaos is going to come a fantastic Gulf Coast, like it was before. Out of the rubbles of Trent Lott’s house — he’s lost his entire house — there’s going to be a fantastic house. And I’m looking forward to sitting on the porch.(Laughter.)

Well Mr. Bush, please do let us know when that porch is done, so we can all come sit a spell!
