Katrina: Whose Victory, Exactly?

I think Anne Applebaum at the Washington Post has it right, the reaction to Katrina has been a miracle and if we can get past the political posturing I think we would be able to see more.  Here is an example of what she is talking about… 

Last week my son’s elementary school raised several thousand dollars for hurricane victims by washing cars. My other son’s preschool announced without fuss that a boy from New Orleans would be joining the class. My employer is organizing help for the company’s Gulf Coast employees, my local bookstore is collecting money for the Red Cross and my favorite radio station raised $54,000 last weekend. Every church or synagogue attended by anyone I know is, of course, raising money, housing evacuees or delivering clothes to victims.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
