A Non-Food Entreaty
The damage inflicted by Hurricane Katrina has obviously been devastating, while the ineptitude and footdragging of our federal government -- which is only now starting to take action, five days after the hurricane destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives -- have been nothing short of absolutely appalling. The American Red Cross has been on the scene all week, trying to provide assistance and services when government officials were too busy vacationing to do anything. If you can, please donate to The Red Cross or to any other relief agency working to address this humanitarian crisis. No amount is too small, and every dollar helps. Thank you.
