Today is the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall along the Gulf Coast. Lots of opinion pieces, news stories, and blogposts have been devoted to the topic, but the two most important posts I think you should read on the topic come from Paul at Wizbang who lived in New Orleans when the hurricane hit (not sure if he’s still there or not) and Bryan at Hot Air, who compiled quite a number of very detailed posts about Katrina and the aftermath of it, who was at fault for what, etc, when he still blogged at Junkyard Blog.
Paul’s post will make you rethink everything you know about what happened when and after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Bryan’s will make you furious all over again, especially at local and state officials and their handling of pre-Katrina evacuations and post-Katrina relief efforts.
