Katrina

Hi - sorry for not posting. I have been involved with coverage of the Katrina disaster, which has sucked the oxygen out of all other parts of my brain.

Hard to know what to say. I am heartsick and searching. We have seen some unbearable things in the past week and undoubtedly will see more as the weeks wear on, things once thought virtually impossible in America. That will force some soul-searching, some changed minds. When an event like this occurs it becomes a reference point in people's lives and a cultural touchstone. What kind of new path do we all find ourselves on right now? What will stay the same and what will change?
