I'm sort of glad I had a lost cat to focus on. I only read/watched the news a couple times over the weekend. This was good, because I was getting way too depressed. Being back in touch today doesn't make me feel a whole lot better. Yes, New Orleans is stabilized, sorta. But things across the whole region are bad, in an "aftermath of Gettysburg" sort of way. And the stories that are now emerging are horrifying. And don't reflect well on the authorities.
