For extensive coverage on the racial implications of the hurricane in New Orleans, see my friend Ben's blog, Hungry Blues. Listening to Amy Goodman's "Democracy Now" show this morning was also eye-opening.

  1. I think the adminstration hasn't done enough to provide but we should not blame just Bush but also the local governments, who were responsible at first...!

  2. I agree - why didn't they get in buses to evacuate the people who were too poor to leave on their own? Why didn't they make sure that people in all the nursing homes got out? But nonetheless, the ultimate responsibility does lie with the federal government with a disaster of this magnitude.
