Sorry, this is about New Orleans again.

Not remotely original, but I thought I’d serve these treats up to you anyway, even if they are lukewarm and stolen from other people’s plates:

  1. Police looting in WalMart (video clip).
  2. A quote from Barbara Bush (aka W’s ‘mom’) talking about the New Orleans evacuees at Houston Astrodome: “And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this — this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them.”

    Hear her say this here, in full awareness that she’s talking out loud and into a microphone, and marvel at what sort of thing she must say behind closed doors.

Soundtrack to this post: Dry – PJ Harvey
