Katrina Remember

Jane Hamsher has an excellent post up about Hurricane Katrina.

Barack Obama
has said, now that we approach the second anniversary the following:

America failed the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast long before that failure showed up on our television sets. America failed them again during Katrina. We cannot -- we must not -- fail for a third time. But tragically, that's what's happening today. And that's what needs to change. I am here to remember this, but also to look ahead. We need to rebuild this city. And we need to tend to the foundation that we rebuild upon.

This is the first post of many, because with 2 years since we watched as people died and very little accomplished for the black communities, we should never forget.
