Hurricane coverage

A lot of us have something to say about Katrina, but three local bloggers stand out:

Dave, who normally writes about homeland security, has been ripping Bush and his feds a new one, in great detail, for belated, unorganized relief efforts:

Andy has set up Katrina Aftermath - A Public Gallery of Thoughts, Images and Sounds in Response to Hurricane Katrina.
