Links about Katrina

John Scalzi on the FEMA director blaming the people who couldn't evacuate.

Bitch PhD shares Mayor Ray Nagin vs. the feds.

Also via Bitch PhD, President Bush has a good chortle about how nice Trent Lott's rebuilt house will be, here.

My friend Rob at Un-apologetic Atheist lost a friend who was shot by a looter in his New Orleans bait shop.

Michael Bérubé on government-shrinking Republicans and the current disaster.

The Rude Pundit, over here, writes: But the Bush adminstration has broken the basic social contract in New Orleans, the one that goes all the way back to Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, the one that says we adhere to laws because you agree to protect us, and thus the city and its citizens have returned to the state of nature, which is to survive, motherfuckers, just survive.

Your links made me teary. I'm so sad for Rob. And Michael Berube should be my boyfriend.

I'm glad you linked to the Michael Brown thing because I couldn't find it, grr.

Now I just need to find updates on those 2 women who were separated from their kids...
