Sad policy

Thing about the complex nature of responses to Katrina is that they seem to be very effective at making the sadness of the overall situation linger. The Chronicle reports on how the New Orleans campus of Southern University, a historically black college or university (HBCU), is having a hard time getting FEMA to help them out. One of the problems is that they let students move back into a damaged building which FEMA sees as evidence that it isn't so bad.

(The photo is fromNOLA's French Quarter, far from the campus. But I wasn't sure when I would get to use it if I didn't pull it out today.)
