When the Levees Broke


I've had the box set sitting on my shelf for sometime, but haven't brought myself to watch it.  With my wife having become hooked on Treme, maybe we will finally get around to watching this Requiem in Four Acts.  Reviews were generally excellent for Spike Lee's homage to New Orleans, a city that seemed to greatly affect the American consciousness, at least for a little while, as we all grieved in the devastation Hurricane Katrina brought to this city and the lack of political will to bring aid to the city in its time of need.  So many books now available on Katrina and its aftermath, including this one by Phyllis Montana LeBlanc, who was featured in the documentary.
