An Accurate Report

This makes me extremey happy. Someone with a realistic and accurate take on the situation here. This makes me so happy because it is one of the first pieces from outside New Orleans that has a solid ring of truth to it. Three cheers for Rolling Stone!

Rolling Stone : How to Steal a Coastline: “New Orleans, ninth ward, near the infamous levee, the last Tuesday in March. I’m in the passenger seat of a spiffy black Volkswagen, staring out my window in shock. Only one word comes to mind: Hiroshima. Houses all sideways and blown to bits, cars flipped over, ground covered with glass and wire and dismembered dolls’ heads. No water, no electricity, no civilization.”
