Five Days with Katrina

Alvaro R. Morales Villa has a great slide show of almost two hundred photos of New Orleans entitled Five Days with Katrina. There's a caption with each photo giving a nice visual and written history of what Alvaro witnessed over his last five days in New Orleans.

What really piqued my interest was a photo (somewhere around the 180th) of the MSNBC reporter. The caption says what anyone who’s been around reporters in the field knows and what every one else should know:
I don't know her name, but she works for MSNBC. My apologies for my wordage, but this wench didn't know what the hell was going on. She made up 75% of what she was saying and exaggerated about 95% of everything that she did know. The message: do you want to be a reporter? All you need to do is have a pretty face and buy a Thesaurus!
