I've been watching events in NO and Miss. unfold on CNN. It's getting worse every minute.

We suffered through Isabel two years ago, so I do empathize with the misery -- lack of water, no power, no ice to be found, food spoiling all around you, trees everywhere, fires burning out of control because there was no power to run the city water pumps...I swore then that I would never again shrug off what happens in a hurricane that didn't affect me personally. My heart goes out to every citizen down there.
