NOLA – Four, Three, Two, One, Now

The Depths of Misery (h/t NOAA) [click to enlarge]

Four years ago.

Three . . . (see here as well)

Two . . . (and here, too)

One . . .

Today (and the Times-Picayune has a whole Katrina Anniversary page, for those who want still more).

Accountability anyone? Not so much.

Meanwhile, the kids bear the brunt, and if you want a glimpse of what wingnuts with guns who hate both the government and people who don’t look like them are capable of, there’s this story.

Lord, have mercy . . .

I Want My Rendon Group Profile



I'm an ordained Lutheran pastor with a passion for language, progressive politics, and the intersection of people's inner sets of ideals and beliefs (aka "faith" to many) and their political actions. I mostly comment around here, but offer a weekly post or two as well. With the role that conservative Christianity plays in the current Republican politics, I believe that progressives ignore the dynamics of religion, religious language, and religiously-inspired actions at our own peril. I am also incensed at what the TheoCons have done to the public impression of Christianity, and don't want their twisted version of it to go unchallenged in the wider world. I'm a midwesterner, now living in the Kansas City area, but also spent ten years living in the SF Bay area. I'm married to a wonderful microbiologist (she's wonderful all the way around, not just at science) and have a great little Kid, for whom I am the primary caretaker these days. I love the discussions around here, especially the combination of humor and seriousness that lets us take on incredibly tough stuff while keeping it all in perspective and treating one another with respect.

And Preview is my friend.
