Times like these turn one's thoughts away from art commentary.
Artsjournal has set up a Hurricane Katrina page to track news about the impact of storms on cultural institutions. Said page contains a letter from a theater company brilliantly called Swine Palace regarding an Arts United for Hurricane Relief program.
CNN does a point-by-point comparison between the platitudes issued recently from the quivering lips of FEMA chief Michael Brown and Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff on the one hand, and reality on the other. Not only should these people be fired from their jobs; they should be fired out of a cannon into the giant oil spill south of Louisiana. Homeland security, my ass.
