Donating against Katrina

New Orleans inundated (from Washington Post)

I've haven't blogged much today because, frankly, I have been sitting around depressed about hurricane Katrina. I just donated some $$ to the American Red Cross. I hope you will take time out of your busy day to make a small donation too.

"I'm sorry. I know we're supposed to be observing an accountability free moment for the president. But there are just too many examples out there of the ways in which his policies have contributed to and accentuated this crisis: systematic cuts in levee and pump construction around New Orleans (see article below), phasing out FEMA and the apparently the whole concept of national coordination of the response to natural disasters. That's a great idea, isn't it? Similar failings are discussed by Bruce W. Jentleson and Juliette Kayyem at TPMCafe. And, of course, example after example of cronies running critical agencies. Anyone want to give a buzz to Joe Allbaugh over at New Bridge Strategies?

Can you contact the driver of the ambassador of Haiti for an update on the affair between the ambassador of Haiti to Taiwan and the ambassador of Swaziland to Taiwan.
