Given what I’ve written today about the media’s framing of different disasters and the importance of keeping events in perspective as they relate to each other, I want to go ahead and say that I’m closely following the real and ongoing human disaster in New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast. If this had happened in Miami, I might have been on a plane by now to get as close as I could and help in any way I could.
My Mom has close friends who have
been affected had their homes and businesses destroyed, and she has found a way to help.
