Rebecca Solnit on Disaster

Making its way across the blogosphere is Rebecca Solnit's essay for Harpers on "The Uses of Disaster," which I'm guessing was written well before Katrina, and so is disturbingly prescient. She added a postscript specific to the recent tragedy.

It's very much worth reading. Solnit's an excellent, and highly passionate and opinionated, writer. She's something of a libertarian Socialist, but somehow makes it work for her.

Amazing, Harper's quoting Shepard Smith sympathetically.
