Motivated reasoning is to blame for why some morons people believe whatever the people in the TV tell them.

Some douchebaggery on how Katrina "cleansed New Orleans" of the human parasites, i.e. Black people, from some right-wing asshole I've never heard of.

More Katrina Anniversary events.

Surprise, surprise, the flood pumps are not reliable.

This article talks about a study of the deaths during Katrina.  This one is another death index, that takes into account reasons other than the immediate Hurricane that killed people.  I met a lot of people who were getting  sick from the stress and depression of living after Katrina.
