More Katrina Stuff

If you haven't seen the infamous MSNBC video of NOPD cops looting Wal-Mart the day after the storm, it can be seen here. "I'm doing my job".

What's the dumbest article I've read about Katrina? This one.

The Houston Chronicle has a blog about what is happening at the Astrodome.

Bush stage-managing heart-warming photo ops? Surely not!

Here's another old article laying out what people have known for some time: that a big storm would annihilate New Orleans.

Paul Craig Roberts puts it as plainly as can be: "Why can't the U.S. government focus on America's needs and leave other countries alone?...Why are American helicopters blowing up Iraqi homes instead of saving American homes in New Orleans?"

Bangladeshi blogger Rezwan has some thoughts about Katrina in relation to the flooding that so frequently affects his own country. Has some interesting links as well.
