New Orleans Roundup
There’s a lot of amazing things being written out there. One of the more fascinating would be Interdictor’s LiveJournal. He’s keeping a New Orleans ISP running, and blogging as he and his co-workers do. He asks that we link with mgno.com, but that’s been intermittent. Use Livejournal as a backup.
Michael Froomkin has a roundup, “A Total Disaster.” The video link is especially worthwhile. The New York Times has “Local Officials Criticize Federal Government Over Response.” Tyler Cowan has a “A short recent history of FEMA,” with some hard questions for libertarians.
Finally, the CounterTerrorism blog has Security Chaos in Hurricane Aftermath – What Does It Mean for the Future?:
If America ever suffers a WMD terrorist attack with widespread destruction and casualties, how the Federal Government responds to the Katrina aftermath may be indicative of what the American people could expect after some future massive terrorism event. Unfortunately, what we are seeing with the rapid breakdown of law and order in New Orleans might also be indicative of what could be expected after an extended, large-scale disaster in any large metropolitan area.
