Lee Looks at New Orleans and Katrina Blues

HBO will air a four-hour documentary by Spike Lee on New Orleans and the Hurricane Katrina disaster called When the Levees Broke. Salon writer Cynthia Joyce has a review here.

It looks like much of this is about the aftermath of the storm and how we as a government handled it. I say “we” because we elected and we did not indict the major players of the tragedy when it was done. They are still in office or off to better jobs. This is good timing for the fall elections.

Air times are Monday and Tuesday nights (8/21 and 8/22) plus all four hours will be shown on the Aug. 29 Katrina anniversary.
