A Year Of Katrina: “Episode 366″

Baton Rouge Advocate columnist Danny Heitman, writing in the Christian Science Monitor, says the media’s biggest post-Katrina flaw is boredom. He writes:

“If the everyday challenges of post-Katrina Louisiana fail to register in the global media machine, it is perhaps because journalism, by its nature, sees the world as a series of dramatically packaged episodes rather than the dry continuum that a recovery from disaster can be.

Tuesday, we in Louisiana will star in Episode 366, the Katrina anniversary. Then we will prepare for another day post-Katrina, when the cameras leave us once again.”
