Do Something. Now.

Donate to the Red Cross Volunteer at the Red Cross

Please donate to the Red Cross or the Humane Society Disaster Relief Fund -- animals are Katrina victims, too.

My good friend Billmon has a good list of disaster relief organizations -- please donate as much as you can afford.

Thank you all for you generous donations. We have to help -- it's all up to us.

Thanks for mentioning the Humane Society. Two more organizations helping the animals are American Humane, and North Shore Animal League. Lots of animals will be affected by this disaster, also. Thanks again.

Dude I didn't know they could spam blogs... So can you report them and get them in trouble or are you just screwed and at the mercy of the spammers? Of course they were stupid enough to leave tracks in the form of links, but I wont be clicking on them to find out, or become infected with the latest worm/virus what ever...

I was watching a reuters video feed and it showed a rescue of a man on a roof with a dog, however they left the dog on the roof.

How many of the 30,000 National Guard have made it to the state?

I saw a lot of paranoia over shots fired and one hospital wanted to be evacuated because a delivery truck was hold up at gun point.

Michael Moore sent me this email which explains why Bush did all he could do to help out:

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

I happened to pass by your blog today while searching for content for my home based business opportunity related website. I am amazed at the level of detail you have here and perhaps it explains why I landed here in the first place.

Such efforts in providing netters with critical and balanced information is the reason why we have the net in the first place. While I did not find exactly what I was looking for, I found your insight into
home based business opportunity very very helpful. I wish you could know that your efforts do make a diffrence in other people's lives, certainly to me this time.

To your success
Vincent Molelekwa
