Katrina Follow Up

Jeanne at Body and Soul has been superlative in her follow up of the Katrina story.

Gretna Update, on the housing issues, and Kicking down Prison Doors, an examinatin of its politics, are just two of her recent pieces on Katrina's aftermath.

There's something deeply moral about sticking to this story...something that reflects a real advocacy for Katina's victims..the largest displacement of U.S. citizens in generations. In many ways, at exactly the point Katrina left the front pages of the news media and the blogs (this blog included) was when we were most needed.

As usual, Body and Soul could be counted on to follow through on the important things.

  • Via Atrios, via Raw Story (caveat lector), Judy might resign.

  • Probably one of the biggest disasters in US history. A whole city almost completeley destryed. Is anyone being helped accountable?

  • Schröder sent a warning to "his British friend" -- meaning Blair, with whom he's clashed loudly over the EU's direction -- declaring that, "people in Germany, in Europe, don't want complete de-nationalization, they don't want the privatization of lifetime risks. People don't want a state in their faces, but they want it at their side."

    He went on to highlight the dangers posed when a state is weakened by a liberalized economy, making a transparent reference to the fall-out from Hurricane Katrina in the United States. "I can think of a recent disaster that shows what happens when a country neglects its duties of state toward its people."
