Harry Shearer's Two Years of New Orleans Coverage

Harry Shearer has been writing about Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans and the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast for The Huffington Post since the day the storm first hit the Crescent City and South Mississippi. As the nation marks the second anniversary of the storm's passage across the Gulf Coast, The Huffington Post has assembled Shearer's observations in one post, so our readers can revisit his observations on New Orleans and the recovery effort.
