25. How quickly the media forgot.
Of course stories moved on, more news every day that must be covered -but why, why weren't their deferential attitudes more....altered?

A typical progression: CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien wondering why she, with a 23-year old intern and a lap top, has more information than FEMA director Michael Brown; newsreel of Canadian Mounted Police arriving before a coordinated U.S. response; then a man, sitting months later for Lee's patient camera, telling matter-of-factly how he left his dead mother in a wheelchair outside the Superdome, a note pinned to her chest.
