Great post

Gets to the heart of it, doesn't it?

For the ongoing exploitation

of migrant workers (underpaid or not paid at all), see

Broken Levees, Broken Promises (PDF) for first person accounts. In the meantime, companies like Blackhawk and DynaCorp are cleaning up by providing security services for law enforcement.

Nobody connects the dots

quite like you do. This is the face of "us" that we don't want to look at, lacking the courage to admit that it won't and can't change until we clean all the hot-air fog off the mirror.

"Your call is very important to us . . . but we don't have time to talk just now, because it's time to walk the poodles."

Yeah . . .

so close to home

i almost grew up there. spent summers, christmas, every year. family. later, school. family going back so far in time. my sister lives there, except no. not now. she lives here with me now.

since katrina.

i'm in tears. i avoid it too. i saw this post earlier, saw the photo. couldn't say anything. it hurts too much we don't even talk about it directly. i'm too close to it.
