Hurricane Katrina

I am completely numb about the horror of the hurricane and its aftermath. I am not very good at articulating my feelings when they are very overpowering, so I prefer to read and hear others rather than share my impressions, which are very similar to other people's (anger, horror, tears). Please donate to the Red Cross if you have not already.

I hope that as a result of this, FEMA gets its funding back and gets some new, competent management. That is all I am going to say about that. There is no reason for me to waste time putting into my own words what has been said much better by that poor parish president, Mr. Broussard, who was on the Meet the Press show.

Hi, Anna in Cairo -- I just came across your comment in the "Rigorous Intuition" site and was delighted that there was another woman living here who actually reads RI!

I am a Canadian-Egyptian (in Canada, I was an Egyptian-Canadian), who's been living in Cairo since the mid-90s. Since you have teenaged kids, we're probably around the same age: I'm in my early 40s.

I took a look at your blog and found that we appear to share a number of interests and views. I'd like to exchange email addresses so that not everything I write is published in a blog.

My email address is I look forward to hearing from you.
