We’re coming up on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the tragedy in New Orleans, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of one-year-later commemorations in the coming weeks. (If I had cable, I’d totally be watching this.)
Yesterday I caught an unusual bit of post-Katrina footage on YouTube (where I’d been directed by Towleroad). It’s, uh, Celine Dion (ew) being interviewed via satellite by Larry King (ew!), and for the first minute or so I was certain the point was Celion Dion is an asshole. But then it totally turns around. By the end, or at least before the closing song, I was feeling something I’d never, ever felt before: the urge to applaud Celine Dion.
