More on Katrina

The BBC News has quotes from articles published in papers around the world, many sympathetic.

Crooks and Liars
has the now infamous Kanye West video featuring his comments during the fundraiser for Katrina last night including, "George Bush does not care about black people." Whether or not you care to agree with West, he speaks for a lot of people. They also have a video from Fox News from last night in which Sean Hannity tries desparately to put a positive spin of some sort on the relief efforts, but Sheppard Smith and a crying Geraldo Rivera (in what appears to be a sincere moment!) rebuff him.

Laura Rozen continues to do a fantastic job of reporting on her blog. She reports on the good ($219 million donated so far in the states) and the bad (the Feds rejecting assistance offered by Mayor Daley, of Chicago, for instance). Essential reading for me when I want to find out about this.
