More on post-Katrina

Kos rescued a diary today that shows pictures of houses FEMA considers habitable, and therefore their residents ineligible for funding to repair or relocate. Look at the pictures and ask yourself - could you live in these places?

A commenter pointed to another diary that describes the obstructionist policies that Katrina survivors are faced with when they try to actually get their lives back in order.

Katrina was an enormous wound to this country, and it's disgusting to see how the US government is allowing it to fester. Even if I were to believe that no one "could have anticipated the breach of the levees," there's absolutely no excuse for this kind of neglect.
