Hurricane Katrina - Dig Deep
Dear Readers:

As I've been somewhat limited in my posting efforts over the past few days, I have been unable to comment on the situation faced by our countrymen and women living in and around the Gulf Coast. The situation in places like New Orleans, Biloxi, and the coastal regions of Alabama, Louisiana, and Georgia is truly indescribable. Once thriving communities have been literally blown off the map.

What remains of the population of those communities is in desperate need of help.

There will be plenty of time for Monday Morning Quarterbacking, The Blame Game, and other ways to waste time, energy, effort and bandwidth - later. People need help now.

Here are some of the ways you can help. Cash is King - send all you can.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - The Mormons Sometimes they come knocking at your door to share religion, here they help the displaced, needy, and desperate.

American Red Cross

The Salvation Army

And now on a personal note:

I have, after a brief internal debate, decided to add two entries on the lower level of Cordeiro's Sliding Scale of Humanity. I did not think it was possible to slide lower than "Contractor", but some slimeball thugs in New Orleans have managed to find a way to blow right by that level, and sink even lower. Today's entries are:

Looters. They take from those who have lost everything. I'm not talking about people ransacking grocery stores to feed their families. I'm talking about those thugs who loot flooded homes for jewelry. I'm talking about those who loot businesses just because no armed guards are there to stop them. Enjoy your loot people. Karma is a terrible thing.

Roaming Bands of Thugs who rob rescue teams and shoot at helicopters. Can you sink lower than trying to kill those trying to save others? Methinks not. Troops are coming, guys. They have a nasty habit of shooting back with large caliber weapons.

Here endeth the lesson.
Karma is indeed, an interesting thing.

Here here to the dig deep.

As well, I agree with the lowest forms of humanity.

I can comprehend it not.

I donate to the church only, because I am certain where the money goes. I know kind of snobby, but that is how I am.. Kind of snobby..:)
