The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor -
"August 29, 2015: on this day: Hurricane Katrina...
It was on this day 10 years ago, in 2005,
that Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast near New Orleans.
...New Orleans writer, T.J. Fisher, wrote of the storm:
'Katrina changed everything. Life here is different,
every face altered. Yet we feel and sense the landscape
not only in its hurricane-leveled, sodden depressions but
- perhaps even more so now in the strangely comforting depths
of our shared history. Even in the worst hit areas,
not all is dissipated. Dense intricate attachments burrow too deep
to underestimate or overlook. This is no featureless town to be
rubbed off the map and cast aside. Here the band plays on.'"
