Hurricane Watch

I continue to be amazed at the powerful reporting and writing that's being done in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In an earlier posting, I praised the work of New Orleans Times-Picayune and reporters, but great work is being done about the storm by journalists from around the country. In "Like ancestors, Islenos survivors persevere," Frank Main of the Chicago Sun-Times describes Katrina's impact on a community of fishermen and refinery workers near New Orleans whose ancestors came from the Canary Islands. It's beautifully written and taught me about a community I hadn't known about before (disclosure: Frank works with friends of mine and we've had lunch together a couple of times).
