some recent overlaps around Hurricane Katrina and the arts: the most-recent issue of BOMB magazine has an excellent short story by Sheila Bosworth. Broken down into over a dozen little shorts, the stories mix facts and figures, times and places with first-hand accounts and quotes ranging from a paraphrased Ernest Hemingway (“Katrina? Just another whore.”) to interactions with a real person with the pseudonym Commander (“People kept saying, Buses is coming for us, everybody line up for the buses.”).

The article includes a photograph by Robert Polidori whose current exhibition After the Flood is currently on view at the MET.
