really liked it
Read from February 15 to 21, 2011

Having gone through Katrina as a resident of the Gulf Coast (I live in Mobile, AL and had the chimney blown off my roof during the storm) I still find it hard to fathom all of the chaos and bureaucratic bullshit that went on in New Orleans and along the Coast. The bad thing is that if another Katrina hit this summer, I'm not sure anything would be radically different. Maybe this book shed enough light on what happened that it wouldn't be as colossal a screw up. Well researched and detailed book!
