Last night, we watched Rachel Maddow examining the lack of affordable housing in New Orleans (this has actually become a bigger problem in the five years since Katrina). There's been lots of talk about the anniversary of Katrina. The images on television over those several days are very much seared into my mind; I remember watching with Liz and both of us being absolutely thrown for a loss at what we saw.
Here's a picture from Jocelyn Augustino at FEMA, which was taken on August 30, 2005.
