Thursday, September 01, 2005Too Much
I've been wanting to write about the slow, agonizing demise of New Orleans for a couple of days, but frankly, my rage at the situation has been so overwhelming that I'm finding it hard to articulate my thoughts. This is exacerbated by the fact that the full scale of the Gulf Coast Apocalypse is still unfolding; I'm not even finished getting angry yet, much less ready to express that anger. I've been obsessivly watching streaming video of NOLA news for two days -- I'm not sure how many more broken people I can see before it all becomes too much.
I just didn't want anyone to think I wasn't paying attention.
And yes, I blame the Bush administration, at least in part, for every single death that has occured since Monday. More on that later.
PS: For comparison's sake, a good idea of what a real president would have said, oh, say three days ago. |
