Back after a wonderful vacation, and getting culture shock

I’m back after a BiCamp that was perfect in almost all ways, and have skimmed through some of the recent LJ posts. I had assumed that by the time I got back, almost nobody made homeless by Katrina would still be without at least minimal food, water, and shelter. I guess I was wrong.

It’s always weird coming back to the news after a long time without it. I remember wondering as we drove east on I-90 what big stories would have happened while I was away. I wouldn’t have thought that Rehnquist’s death would be overshadowed by a story I’d actually already heard before I left.
