KATRINA BLOWS
Still on hiatus here at Days, but had to break for a moment to offer my condolences and provide a few links to sites taking donations. If you can spare it, help out a little... it's horrific down there, and getting more so by the day. Even from the bluest of blue states, our thoughts are most certainly with you all in these trying times.

DONATE
UJC
Red Cross
Second Harvest
Habitat for Humanity
Network for Good (more orgs)

UPDATE: I'm a little late to the game here, but check out Truth Laid Bear's Blog Relief effort. If you make a donation, log it here. But most importantly, just help out if you can. Thanks.

AND ANOTHER THING
I realize right-wingers will chastise anyone who tries to make political hay out of such a disaster, but there is simply too much evidence to NOT wave a blame finger at dear leader and his cadre of fools. Donate first, then have a look at this...

Oh, and flybys and photo-ops unfortunately won't fix a damn thing.

Going to an interview with Diane Sawyer will fix everything and by God he did that first thing this morning. The man's sacrifices are mind boggling.
