    Colleen Bazdarich spent the summer in Dublin sifting through the
    private library of Poetry Ireland, where she found gems like a 1st
    edition copy of Jack Spicer's Billy the Kidd hidden in the covers of
    other books. Her work has lately focused on the occult, and she hopes
    to return to the Green Isle next year to study up on Yeats' similar
    fascination with mysticism and maybe, while she's there, finish up the
    MFA thesis for SFSU she's supposed to be writing.

    Katrina...

    I keep thinking it's been 5 days and people are still in the Superdome, still on their roofs, still stuck in a city submerged. Why isn't more being done, why wasn't more down earlier, why didn't they push harder for a mandatory forced evacuation? But most importantly Bush why haven't you shown your face to the American people and issued a plan to help, why aren't you urging Americans to donate, or are you so disconnected from the non-rich that you just don't care.

    I've been obsessively reading the news and looking at pictures from this devasting area of the country. First and foremost send money to the Red Cross ASAP.

    Here's what I've found:

    The mayor of New Orleans extreme disappointment and raw honesty.

    Seth Abramson has a terrific post on Katrina

    Because Bush likes to lie and we certainly knew that the levees were in jeapordy.

    FEMA-What the hell happened Mr. President from the Washington Post

    I thought the job of the President was to lead and comfort in times of national crisis.

    Further proof that Bush and Washington have a major disconnect with this nations poor.

    Attytood: a newsblog with plenty of opinions on the subject, it's what we're all thinking but afraid to say. well not always, but you know what I mean.

    And of course Common Dreams which contains much much more on the situation.
