Wearying Wait for Federal Aid in New Orleans...

During my visit to New Orleans this past weekend I heard repeated concern that "America would forget." I heard stories of futile efforts to get Federal Aid.

The NYT has this article today that documents some of the frustrations of individuals seeking to rebuild their lives. Three months after Katrina, it's clear that behind politicians' rosy declarations are thousands of people still waiting for FEMA assistance.


"You come to these FEMA centers, you sit all day. You get no answers to your questions."
