So much I could say about the Gulf Coast five years after Katrina, New Orleans in particular, and it all seems incomplete and inadequate. How to strike a balance between the urgency of saying look, it’s not over, there’s still so much work to be done, and not falling into the easy clichés that leave a false image of a people victimized and in need of our pity and hand wringing?

This morning I was glad to see a graphic essay by Jordan Flaherty and Zeph Fish that did a good job of striking that balance. Below are the first two panels of the essay, go to Truth-Out to read the whole thing.
