Obligatory Katrina Post

It’s hard to think about posting, and not posting about Katrina. And yet I’m aware of my lack of eloquence, my lack of insight. What on earth could I possibly add that hasn’t been said before and better. Coastal erosion, hot waters in the Gulf of Mexico, various environmental degredations that made Katrina’s impact possible… we know. A slow and sloppy response… we know. I’m sad and frustrated and frightened for the city and for the people who got stuck there. I can’t stop thinking about all the pets. And all the people who are dying because they run out of insulin or oxygen or the other things they rely on in order to live.

I wish I could go there and hand out water or help salvage or drive a bus. Which is the last thing anyone needs, really. I just wish I could.
