where the streets have no bodies

Dave Winer has a poignant post about the Spike Lee documentary. I haven’t seen it yet either but am having my friends with cable taping it for me. I am sure I will see snippits this weekend when I am in NOLA and near a satellite dish with HBO.

Like Dave, I have not been able to comprehend the amount of water that was there, in my own home, and on the streets I’ve driven countless times. Reading Douglas Brinkley’s book has given me more of an idea, via his interviews with people, of what the neighborhoods looked like and I blogged recently about a picture that horrified me–still, I am sort of detached from it all. Not sure how it all happened, but aware that it did and that it’s going to take a long time before everyone gets their insurance and FEMA money.

  1. I look forward to hearing about the Rising Tide meeting went. I’m going to be pinch-hitting for Sharon this weekend at the Pearlington blog and am going to write about some alternatives to FEMA trailers.
