I am planning to take the day off work and attend the field hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, which is being held here in New Orleans on Monday. The title of the hearing is “Hurricanes Katrina and Rita: Outstanding Need, Slow Progress.” Details and discussion here. I will be wearing black. I will take notes. I encourage any locals who are able to do the same. Let’s pack the place.
Update: Slate’s got a flyer suitable for printing.
