Almost a year ...

Since Katrina. Scout Prime is beginning a video series called The Great Deluge:

As the 1 year anniversary of The Great Deluge approaches I will be offering a look back at the year. Here is the first part of a video of Tom & Jen telling their story of what happened to them after the levees broke. It was taped in March when I was in NOLA.


A year ago, an American city was almost destroyed, it might as well have been bombed, and those on the ground are still feeling the effects. Another in a long list of Bush failures over the past six years. We've spent so much in Iraq, on tax cuts for the wealthy, and outright corruption, yet we can't afford to make our own citizens whole. It's just another reminder to the poor, ethnic, or non-Christian that this government doesn't give a shit if you live or die.
