A look back at the devastation of Hurricane Katrina

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, then FEMA director Michael Brown took a beating for his lack of formal emergency management experience. It’s been three years since Brown stepped down as FEMA’s director. But in one way at least, he’s picked up where he left off: Brown now owns a crisis management firm. We check in with Michael Brown about life after Katrina, lessons learned, and how he thinks about that tragic moment now that he has the clarity that often comes with the passing of time.

"THE GRINCH WHO STOLE KATRINA FROM THE DAILY NEWS

Boo hoo for Mr. Vincent Wilson, interviewed this morning as a Katrina survivor living in Houston, who expressed some of the hardships he's had to endure since leaving New Orleans--'I have to work at home and live in a diverse neighborhood, a subdivison-with only 3% African American."

Maybe his heart needs to grow 3 sizes for him to undertand the hardships in the other Who's houses-like those who live in trailers and don't have a job or a wife who can help support them!
