    an elegy too soon:

    Michael Ledeen, for that prestigious journal of conscience the National Review, suggests we celebrate New Orlean's "rich culture of death". You see, like the Irish and other doomed peoples, folks down on the bayou party it up at funerals, as can be seen from the images on CNN of American refugees singing and dancing as they wade through their own shit, pleading for help with big grins from the rooftops, and crying out with tears of joy to the cameras for lost loved ones. It's a regular carnivale down there, all right.

    I can't, at the moment, think of much that better demonstrates a 'culture of death' than penning a romantic elegy for an entire city in which there are still people fighting for eachothers' lives.
