“Take that for climate change, Mr President.” September 2, 2005

I’ve found myself crying over Katrina’s destruction in the gulf… pondering all those natural disaster movies that we’ve made, because we’ve known this stuff was possible, if not likely. New Orleans being destroyed by a hurricane has been listed as one of the top worst things that could happen to the United States for years. The worst thing to me, simply watching this happen – and as far as I know, I don’t know anyone personally – is the fact that these thousands of people (packed together like sardines without A/C or water or food, dying of disease, homeless without anything for days, while some acting heroically and helping eachother, some even resorting to rape and murder and all kinds of social disorder) are going to have to wait so long for help… What a nightmare.
