Missing New Orleans

Posted By on Sun, Aug 26, 2007 at 6:35 AM

Historian Douglas Brinkley, who wrote a masterful account of Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans, writes today in the Washington Post New York Times that George Bush wants most of New Orleans to die. Why else the official neglect?

Bush's general attitude -- a Catch-22 recipe if ever there was one -- appears to be that only rank fools would return when the first line of hurricane defense are the levees that this administration so far refuses to fix.

Read it and weep for New Orleans, whose own leaders are a match for Bush.
