This book tells the story of the Zeitoun family (Kathy, her husband Abdulrahman and their kids) , and their experience of Katrina in New Orleans. Kathy takes the kids to safety outside the city before Katrina hits, and Abdulrahman (nicknamed Zeitoun by everyone who knows him) remains in the city to ride out the storm, staying to protect his home and his business. Zeitoun, an immigrant from Syria who has spent years building a successful business in life in the US, makes it through the storm, and then spends the next few days helping neighbors and their abandoned pets survive, either by rescuing them or feeding them. And then... he runs into city police and "imported" security forces (National Guard and police from neighboring states, there to "help" city residents). Who, unbeknownst to me, rounded up many of those remained behind, charging them with "looting" simply because the didn't evacuate. Zeitoun, like many other residents, were then placed in a temporary jail, and then a permanent jail, and basically refused all basic American legal rights (i.e. a phone call, access to a lawyer, hearings, gathering of evidence and more). This book is essentially about how the US is unprepared for "unprepared scenarios." How we, post 9-11, are so scared of ANY threat (instability, Muslims, etc.) that we are willing to sacrifice the basic foundational tenets this country has been built upon (i.e. human rights, protection from torture, the right to human dignity, an access to the country's legal system).
Apparently those in New Orleans knew/know about what happened in the city after Katrina, the human rights abuses that ran rampant. I *thought* I knew a good amount. But this book really brought to my attention how little I really DO know about what happened. And it's quite terrifying. And incredibly sad.
GREAT book, the author tells a good story, which on its own highlights a lot of political truths. I'd recommend the book for people who simply want to read a good basic story. Or for people who wan to know more about what happened in New Orleans during and post-Katrina. Or for people who have a wider interest in the future of the US and civil rights.
Love the deal I got on the BIG bottles of Premsyn PMS medicine.
Double the amount of pills per bottle that I can buy over the counter.
Fast shipping, great price.
I could go into F-stops and all that technical jargon but I've already seen more than one review about that so I'll write this like a common consumer. I've owned one other DSLR (Konika-Minolta) and presently own this one Nikon D5100 16.2MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens. I will admit I don't use it to its full advantage because I really don't know what all the features and haven't taken the time to learn them. A big loss to me. The Fuji is very, VERY similar to a DSLR with one HUGE difference: you don't change lenses. That is very, very nice. It does take good pictures but they suggest putting the flower shade on it. It will grey out your pictures and they don't end up very good. :( I'm uploading some of my own pictures and you can make your own judgement.
As a final note, I decided to take some pics with this camera and with my Nikon. I have 2 lenses for my Nikon: 18-55 and 55-300. Good shots from both, however, the shots I took up close with the Fuji were awesome! (I tried taking some with my 55-300. Bad idea.) Even though I have a terrific DSLR on hand I can see myself using the Fuji more frequently (and my lenses can fit too-the polarized, wide angle, etc...) Easier to carry in my holster: AmazonBasics Holster Camera Case for DSLR Cameras (Black). No need to change lenses. Kinda heavy compared to other point and shoots but you'll never get what this camera does for you with other point and shoots. Never. Worth the money! Enjoy!
Worth every penny! And, I highly recommend the prequel, LIFE ON THE POOP DECK, TROUBLE ON THE WRONG SHIP, which is now in post-production starring Tom Hanks reprising his role as the brilliant Harvard symbologist, Robert Langdon, and Abe Vigoda as the irascible Captain Trimmer. Test audiences were thrilled to see Wanda Sykes in a small, but dramatic role as Lebroun, the Cabin Boy. Read the prequel first. The rest will make a lot more sense. Or, none at all depending upon your grog consumption. In any case, this book is a poignant reminder of the old British naval catchphrase..."Ashore, it's wine, women and song; aboard it's rum, bum and concertina." Avoid ships, altogether.
