I have been struggling to find words to write about the disaster on the Gulf Coast. Let me just follow up on Bruce’s post yesterday encouraging y’all to contribute. He linked to an Glenn Reynolds’ impressive list on Instapundit. After reviewing a few, I made a contribution to Mercy Corps. I will be checking out other organizations and likely making additional contributions.
Please join me in reviewing Glenn’s list and find the charity which, you believe, can best help out at a time like this.
From the blogs I have had time to read since the disaster, Hugh Hewitt and Michelle Malkin have offered the best coverage. I just learned from Michelle the good news that R & B legend Fats Domino has been found alive and rescued. When I had read that he was missing, I feared the worst. Just a reminder, even at trying times like these, not to give up hope. With generosity, good will and the diligence of emergency service personnel — and other volunteers — we can make the best of this terrible situation.
