This is a really disheartening story by two people who were attending a conference in New Orleans when Katrina struck. It’s hard to believe it’s really this bad, you know, even with all the first-hand stories it just seems unfathomable. I wonder whether Norway would collapse as easily. I find it hard to imagine our efficient and more or less fair society failing quite so appallingly, but then so, I imagine, must most Americans have assumed their society would hold up fine.
