Horrible Communist Bastard Makes Good Points

If you're averse to reading an account of the New Orleans situation from a horrible, awful, stinking commie bastard, then you'll probably want to avoid this piece by China Mieville, or this one, or this one.

You certainly wouldn't want to read, for example, that the complete lack of planning and direction is almost certainly because the job of planning for disaster relief was "outsourced" to a private firm called IEM. It might make you believe that there is a role for government after all.

If you aren't averse to horrible godless Reds, however, then feel free to give it a gander. Careful, though, because he's also a science fiction author, and a pretty good one, and we all know what that means.
