turned the corner

Thursday afternoon driving home, Robert Siegel on NPR was grilling Chertoff about the tens of thousands of people at the convention center starving, dehydrating, and dying as they waited to be rescued. Friday afternoon, Siegel and his colleagues were sure that the federal government had their act together, because Bush had his tour. It’s so disgusting and 1984ish that sometimes I envy the people in our building (our school) who are absolutely oblivious to news outside of our community. Maybe I’d rather be a prol.
