it's easy to see renewal when the place you're at has been scrubbed clean for you.

Bush sees renewal after Katrina

So Bubble Boy's down in New Orleans again.

Then, Bronwynne Bassier had returned briefly from Alabama, clutching trash bags, to search the rubble of her former home for clothes for her young son. Sobbing uncontrollably, she told Bush she had lost everything.

On Monday, newly married and now Bronwynne Lesso, she said her old house has been demolished to a concrete slab. She lives in a FEMA trailer with her husband and 3-year-old, and is still trying to figure out how to get a job and whether she can rebuild.

"When they take the FEMA trailers away, I don't know what I'm going to do," she said.

Tell me, how is that better? People are living in deteriorating trailers, with no idea when they'll get jobs, get back into their houses. But "life is great!", right George?
