Harry Shearer as quoted in Shearer of ‘Simpsons’ visits D.C. to screen post-Katrina New Orleans film by Dan Zak posted in The Washington Post on March 13, 2011, story brought to my attention by Style, the official Tumblr blog of the Washington Post’s Style section; a very interesting read about the man who claims in his new documentary that the destruction of Hurricane Katrina was more man-made than natural.
