Pulling back the curtain

Hurricane Katrina pulled back the curtain, exposing the things many knew existed and even more wished not to acknowledge:
Race; class; privilege; cavernous health and income disparities; poverty amidst opulence; distorted and anti-human priorities; the cravenness and incompetence of the Bush administration; the cowardice, weakness and irrelevance of the political opposition.
Take a good look. The rest of the world sees but we in the US will go blind again soon enough.
