Alvaro's Katrina Photo Essay

This is about ten times better than most MSM shit that I have seen.

Aside from some really excellent photography, this is great because Alvaro (apparently a Nicaraguan immigrant who worked at a hotel) shows what he saw from before the storm, after the storm (but before the flooding), then the flooding/looting, and finally how he got out of New Orleans. Mixed in are his comments (pretty damn good, considering English is a second language for him) and some justifiable snark at the media (Shep Smith, Brian Williams, and some unnamed MSNBC bimbo make appearances). Some nice looting shots too, including one particularly stupid looter (You'll know who I mean).

It's simply amazing work, and this guy is not a journalist yet he seems to do much better than most so-called professionals. Why is that? Forget working at a hotel, Alvaro ought to be hired to do this full time.
