Hurricane Katrina

Despite it being over a week now since Katrina struck, I haven’t posted anything much about it. Clearly, a great number of lives have been lost, and this is doubtlessly a tragedy. But all of that is obvious, and there isn’t really a great deal more to say at the moment (not that that usually stops me…). President Bush’s gross mishandling of the incident certinaly can’t be politically (or practically) helpful, and the international help required to handle the incident might make the US reconsider its foreign policy – and maybe even its climate change policy. As always, the Beeb has comprehensive coverage, as does the Grauny, and, of course, the IHT.
