The Fifth Horseman: "It's Over for New Orleans"

"It's Over for New Orleans"

Donate to the Red Cross Relief Fund.

If you're reading this, you have enough money to spare. And, if possible, give blood. I'm sure there will be drives in your area.

Between Biloxi and New Orleans, it looks as if the death toll is going to climb into the hundreds. But more urgent is the plight of those still alive and stranded. So donate. Give blood.

If you want more info, CNN has been providing an excellent running update on the worsening situation.

I'm not going to put a political spin on this update. The situation has become too dire. I'll spin later. For now, just donate.

However, sometime in the near future, after all the people are evacuated, there will need to be some accountability. Some policies that contributed to this disaster will need to be reexamined.

But that will come later. For now, donate and give blood.
