What’s Left To Say About Katrina?

Views

I’m overwhelmed by the Katrina 10th anniversary coverage: from Wright Thompson’s 25,000-word epic for ESPN the Magazine to Michael Brown’s self-serving “stop blaming me” plea in Politico Magazine, from the New York Times’ sweeping multimedia package to this transparent attempt at George W. Bush rehabilitation on FoxNews.com.

But if you’re going to read one thing about the flood, its aftermath, and the anniversary, it’s this piece by my old friend Cheryl Wagner that we just posted. It’s quiet, local, personal, emotional, true, and funny.
