How well do you remember those disastrous few days when low land in Mississippi and Louisiana gave way under the fierce weather brought onshore by Hurricane Katrina? I remember staying at a modest Comfort in in Southwest Virginia, visiting family, and waking up to watch the amazing coverage each morning during their continental breakfast.
I remember the games played back and forth by politicians who tried to make those events work in their career favor. I remember journalists who yearned so desperately to show the drama of the unfolding disaster, that they compromise their ethics and actually pretended to be a part of the worst that the storm had to offer. And here’s a documentary that you might want to watch. It’s admittedly focused on New Orleans, but take some time to educate about how widely the brunt of the storm was felt.
