Longread #2: Great W.Post piece on a NOLA family relocated to Nebraska

This is just a terrific piece of work. This family’s home was destroyed in Katrina, and FEMA asked them if they wanted to be moved to a town they’d never heard of in Nebraska, a state they’d never thought about. They are welcomed at first. Then, not so much. Some of the family members thrive in their new home in the middle of nowhere while others fall into bad habits, bad health, and an angry form of resentment. On Twitter, someone called it horrifying, but I wouldn’t call it that. It’s just a great study of how different people are affected by and respond to the things life throws at them.
