Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Down a Handful of Klonopin with an Abita Beer:

That's a 2010 Google Earth picture of a block in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans. Those things that look like graves are the foundations of homes that no longer exist. Or, you know, graves, more or less.

This is what it looks like on the ground. It's one of the Discovery Channel shows on "after humans," except there's still humans.

And, five years after Hurricane Katrina, the greatest progress in the Lower Ninth is that the wreckage is gone. But for many, many blocks, it's just back to nature.
