I have not had the time or energy to devote to the political aspects of this crisis. I will only say that I am deeply gratified to hear the outrage expressed by those in a position to do so. Mainstream media is candidly talking about the factors of race and poverty that fed this crisis. This is extraordinary. I only wish it hadn't taken an event of this magnitude to make it so. And it brings me great joy to hear Mayor Nagin bluntly announce his fury. Keep it up. Give them hell.
