Spike Lee's Katrina film will air on HBO
One of the most poignant interviews in the Hurricane Katrina documentary "When the Levees Broke" is given by a man who lost his mother in the aftermath of the storm, filmmaker Spike Lee said Sunday. In the interview, Herbert Freeman recalls his mother's death at New Orleans Convention Center and the moment he had to leave her body there as he and other evacuees were taken out of the city.

"Before he got on a bus he had a piece of paper, wrote his name, his cell number and her name and placed the paper between her fingers, her body," Lee said on ABC's "This Week."

"How could this happen, in the supposedly the wealthiest, mightiest country in the world? Really, that's the question," Lee said.


The four-hour film, divided into four acts, examines the government's response to Katrina. The first two parts debut Monday on HBO and the remaining acts will be shown Tuesday.

5. I can't watch anymore
I have all of this in full memory along with 9/11 and Iraq with the bodies and death . All of it is such a horror that I'll never get it out of my mind . Most of it is still in the same shape or worse .

The people who should watch and think long are the ones who voted for and support this murderous bush administration and those who support wars and corporations .
