Crime

Joe Conat's latest editorial is an almost poetic piece on the crime surrounding the New Orleans disaster.


me, I feel torn that though I've donated (Donate Now!, I'm not doing anything physically to help. It's so close and yet so far away. And my life goes on, essentially unaffected in the near future except possibly by a scarcity of gas eventually. But I've been meaning to start biking to work anyway...

Feeling a little disappointed in the country

It's not just the administration... When 9/11 happened, health centers around the country scrambled their emergency burn units and search and rescue teams to the scene. I can only wonder what they're doing now -I have seen no reportage of a similarly big-hearted and speedy response by anyone except a few organizations for whom it is part of their purpose.

And the national gaurd, of course. Those poor young people. First we send half of them to Iraq, then we ask the other half to take up arms against their own people. Bless them, they signed up willingly for this duty.
