A Tale of Two Cities

From the NY Times:

Two families displaced by the same disaster, both facing uncertain futures as they moved forward on Saturday, but in completely divergent circumstances.

Just as it ripped through levees to send water pouring through New Orleans, the storm cleaved a harsh chasm among the region’s refugees, providing a stark portrait of the vast divide between America’s haves and have-nots.

Along the Gulf Coast, we see America’s most familiar story being played out during its most unimaginable event. It was the worst of times and those that were even worse.

Concentration is important!
