Simply Stunning

A must-read account from one refugee of the absolutely atrocious response on all levels to Katrina refugees. Regardless of whether anyone "predicted the Levees would fail," it doesn't take a 20 person committee of Mensa members for the authorities to treat desparate refugees with common decency and respect. This was just horrifying.

Bitch, Ph.D., with the heads up.

Take this one with a grain of salt - lots of speculation in the comments section here (http://www.samizdata.net/blog/archives/008013.html) that this is an urban legend in the making. Sorry, I'm in a hurry, or I'd look for the relevant points. Just be advised that it may be a conflation of separate events with some artistic license taken (or it could be all true, but I'd like to hope not).
