Katarina, Looking Longer Term

There’s a very long post on the public health implications of Katrina at Dave Farber’s IP list, “Hurricane Katrina Analysis – CFR Global Health Program.” I hope that we respond better to these threats than we have to the hurricane.

Thomas Barnett takes a look at the long term effects of “Katrina’s System Pertubation.” (I find Barnett a fascinating blogger, but I wish he’d speak less about what’s happening in his life, so I could keep up with his idea-filled posts.)

Lastly, I’ve decided I should spend a few minutes on disaster planning, and put together a small emergency kit. I think I probably have a lot of what’s needed around the house, but that won’t do me a lot of good when the level-4 biocontainment facility up the road breaks.
