New Orleans in Anarchy with Fights, Rapes
Please, everyone, please donate to the Red Cross. This article really hurt my soul, when I read more about the horrible conditions the area is in. Especially reading about babies dying. I think of Olivia, and it pains me to imagine anything happening to her, or other children.
George Bush is a fucking joke... talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. They need to get their asses into high gear and help these people. Of course, I can't say the New Orleans residents weren't incredibly stupid in the first place... they should have forced everyone to evacuate with the threat of jail time if they didn't. You just can't take any chances with a Category 5 storm, in an area like that.
MoveOn.org is doing a Housing Drive at hurricanehousing.org, which if you live within 300-ish miles of the area, you can host someone or a family. I wish I could, but i'm at least 800 miles away.
