The Sunday Times published a thorough article on Katrina that is a must-read. Absolutely devastating, in so many ways — especially the grotesque violence in the Convention Center and Superdome. Yes, I blame the criminals first, but this kind of violence seems endemic in refugee camps the world over when there are not enough resources to go around and not enough law enforcement personnel. That such a situation, reminiscent of reports out of Darfur and Burundi, should have been permitted in the United States is unforgivable.
