Random quote of the day:
“Natural disasters are a good career move for a man in my line of work.”
—Chris Rose, newspaper columnist, 1 Dead in Attic: After Katrina
(Mr. Rose speaks from deep heartbreak and survivor shock here. This book is a harrowing look at the first four months after Katrina. Composed of the columns he wrote for the Times-Picayune after he returned to the city days after the disaster struck, it’s moving, despairing, cynical, with sparks of humor. It details the flailing attempts of the city to cope and struggle back on its feet, and the frightful impact on the poor people often forgotten in the aftermath of the storm. It’s an amazing piece of journalism, an amazing testament.)
