On Katrina

Poppy Z. Brite has an op-ed at the Boston Globe:

As a New Orleans native planning to spend the rest of my life in this half-drowned but still vibrant city, I'm scared to address you. A year after Hurricane Katrina, I'm scared that you've forgotten me or are sick of me or think I'm stupid to keep living in a place that almost killed me.

I'm a great admirer of Brite's fiction; her blog's also been my clearest and most persistent means of understanding Katrina and its aftermath.
