The reports are trickling in from New Orleans. Massive flooding, people who refused to evacuate with the first evacuation order trapped on their roofs with no food and water, looting, the scale of the misery is impossible to describe. Rather than try to describe it myself, let me refer you to the stories here and here from the Washington Times, here and here from the New York Times and here from NOLA.com. NOLA.com is the best place to go for up to the minute news as they are in the thick of it.
Now is the time to act dear readers. Our southern neighbors desperately need our help. Please contact either the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army or any of the other worthy charities listed on the Blog for Katrina Relief effort. No amount is too small. Please donate today!
