State of New Orleans
From ThinkProgress

President Bush may be giving speeches about how the federal government is standing with the people of the Gulf Coast, but as ThinkProgress points out, the facts speak for themselves:

  • Sixty percent of homes still lack electricity.
  •  

  • Less than half of the city?s pre-storm population of 460,000 has returned.
  •  

  • Nearly a third of the trash is yet to be picked up.
  •  

  • Also, check out this superb Katrina timeline.
  • UPDATE: Watch MSNBC footage of Katrina’s devastation.
