I'd never heard of this guy but this is quite a story. Well worth the read.


The amazing true story of Zeitoun

Abdulrahman Zeitoun is the real-life hero of Dave Eggers's new book. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina he paddled from house to house in a canoe, offering help to his neighbours. For his trouble, he was arrested as a suspected terrorist...

An interesting comment on the variety of ways we behave when the world starts to crumble just a little bit.

"Holy shit, guys, I bet he caused this whole Katrina mess, get him!!!"

Is that what the conversation between the cops went like before he got arrested? Cuz I don't know what's left to terrorize when an entire city is under water.

You guys need to revisit the Homeland Security Act. Just sayin'.
