"To attack poverty by preaching voluntary poverty seems like madness....To be profligate in our love and generosity, spontaneous, to cut all the red tape of bureaucracy! ... To live with generosity in times of crisis is only common sense. In the time of earthquake, flood, fire, people give recklessly; even governments do this."

News you can use -- to dance to
Well, well, well. As it turns out, the US government is full of problem solvers. Well. Ain't that great. I guess everything is going to be fine now. We can't play the blame game. We have to solve problems. Now is not the time to blame people for the lack of government help following Hurricane Katrina.
As the ever-pretty Anderson Cooper said the other night--if now isn't a good time to find out what when wrong, just let me get out my day planner and you can tell me when. We'll set up a meeting.
Man, if only we could stop hurricanes by dropping bombs on them.
