One Short Katrina Post

Briefly, I don't want to blog much about Hurrican Katrina and the ongoing tragedy in New Orleans.
The news and blogs already all over it.
I hope my friends, their families, and everyone else in the region is okay, although I know that's not the case for everyone.

There'll be plenty of time to be angry about all opportunities we missed to do things that would have saved lives and property.

I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
Civil engineering, disaster relief, and helping poor people aren't nearly as exciting to argue about as international struggles against extremism or spreading freedom or whatever, but they do seem a lot more practical today.
