I can neither access the Red Cross’ website or get through on the phone. CNN said they’ve raised $21 million in two days, beating the previous record (the Tsunami). But they need more dough. It’s a friggin’ mess down there, as you don’t need me to tell you. Of course, the Federal Gov’t would have a lot more dough — and National Guard — to send down their to help if we weren’t stealing oil in Iraq. . . but that’s another story. (Also — did I hear Bush right? Did he say something about the EPA waiving certain restrictions of oil refineries to keep the cost of gas down? Dude, we already have the cheapest gas in the world — isn’t global warming fucking up the Earth enough? Can’t we have expensive gas for a few months? Would it be so bad to take the fucking bus?)
