Civil Rights Lawyer vs. Katrina

The personal accounts that are starting to come out of the New Orleans fiasco are amazing. Read Peter Berkowitz's story at MRZine.

I don't know what else to say. We were anxious all the time. The nights were the worst. Partly because nights are generally more frightening. Also because there were often shots or explosions. There was always a surprise. And it was always bad news. It seemed like it would never get better. We just waited and scavenged. We worried that things would get more violent as they got more desperate. We also made incredible friends and saw amazing acts of kindness.
