A crime reporter and columnist for the

New Orleans Times-Picayune, Chris Rose

had been covering politics, pop culture and NOLA nightlife. All that changed on August 29, 2005, when Hurricane Katrina blew into town. On that day, Rose became a self-pronounced war correspondent. Two years later, Rose says the war is still being fought.
