Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Just do it
If today is payday, before you pay your rent, mortgage, car, utilities, groceries or beer money, take 10% off the top and sign it over to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, or other relief charity of your choice.

If Bush won't do anything, let's shame him by showing more support than any other time in the history of the US.

Why they can have Chinook military transport helicopters doing Berlin drops of food and water in a tsunami region halfway around the world within 48 hours of a major disaster and we have to watch our own citizens die before our eyes on live TV is something that no one will ever be able to explain to me in any reasonable manner. There is no excuse for this and whoever dropped the ball should be criminally prosecuted.

    I the problem is...there's not one person we can point at and say "they dropped the ball."
    And of course, the people stuck there are the ones that didn't have the resources to get out. I wonder if there would be this delay if a hurricane hit Congress?

    for the first time I will reply to wanton Bush-bashing with "you're completely right." This is a disgusting travesty- a catastrophe whose magnitude is dwarfed only by that of the arrogance and failure of those entrusted with its solution.

    This is a humiliating day for our country, and our leader still, STILL refuses to admit that something went wrong.

    Oh, that's not true - did you see USA TODAY? They have a quote from Bush:

    "the results are not acceptable"

    Yeah, no kiddin' bub.
