Where is the love?...

The Hurricane Katrina coverage is bothering me. Have there been any stories about courage or heroism or generosity? If there have been, I've missed them. All I've seen is looting and rape and murder. I assume, like with any other disaster, that this situation brought out the best in people as well as the worst. I just wish the media would balance the good with the bad more.

The treatment of this disaster just seems different then the SF earthquake or 9/11 or the tsunami. Or maybe I'm just viewing it differently. I don't know.

On a lighter note, some Big Brother producer needs to tell Howie to stop making his "Hurricane Howie" jokes. Poor guy has no idea what's going on.

The attitude of the media is easily explainable. See Utility
