New Orleans Horror 

Read this column by Bob Herbert in today's Times. It forces you to imagine the extent of the suffering in New Orleans.

UPDATE: See this important post by Josh Marshall. The rebuilding effort is doomed, no matter how much money is spent, for the same reason that the Iraq war was doomed, no matter how many good reasons were adduced in its support: when conscience-free kleptocrats are at the helm, the biggest ships of state can only be Titanics. Period.
