Katrina Relief

KATRINA RELIEF….All griping aside for the moment, it’s good to see that we finally seem to be making some progress today in New Orleans. The city may be uninhabitable for many months, and there are lots of people still waiting for buses, but at least food and water are making it in and evacuees are making it out. We seem to have begun turning a corner.

Much, much more money is still needed though. The liberal blogosphere fundraiser has now raised over $125,000 and is going strong. Click here to contribute.

UPDATE: Did I speak too soon? It does seem as though things are slowly improving, but it’s pretty obvious that there’s still plenty of misery left.
