I haven’t commented at all on Hurricane Katrina. I guess part of the reason is a sort of disbelief. Not that the weather can be that destructive, but that it happened in the US. The idea that an entire American city could be destroyed is almost unbelievable. We are sort of used to it in less developed countries, but, somehow you kind of figure that the world’s only superpower would be able to deal with anything.
Another lesson that we don’t take nature all that seriously.
