Anybody who has been following the horrifying detsruction of lovely New Orleans has been able to observe two catastrophes. One was an unavoidable disaster caused by forces of nature which could be to some degree foreseen, but could not be controlled. The other is being caused by a failure of responsible agencies to anticipate and respond to the predictable consequences. I often enjoy the political satire of Patriotboy, but today he is serious, and gets it just about right. He has posted a call for donations, respond if you can.
Update: The Patriotboy blog is back to its previous form, and the page mentioned above is archived here.
