Katrina, Katrina

Where ya been so long?  Charles P. Pierce reveals today, in his loving preview of the new season of Treme (also one of my favorite shows, though flawed), that a magazine reporter suddenly shows up in town and joins the cast, who are still trying to overcome the effects of Katrina. 

"Also, and just to show you that Simon is keeping up with the latest in his old profession, we meet a new character: a reporter who asks for Leo's help in breaking a story about vigilante killings in Algiers. He's lost his gig because the investigative journalism program at his college ran out of money, so he's in town working "for The Nation magazine, or maybe Pro Publica." First mention of those latter folks in pop culture of which I'm aware."
