The “Story” is over. I’ve been told by a lot of people, and I think they actually believe it. The Truth is a lot more complicated than that. What happened in New Orleans did not stop with the storm winds, it did not disappear with the floodwaters. In fact, it never was a “story” to be packaged, and produced, and put away. It was real. Real life. Real death. (Cooper, 7)
