I wish the politicians and news reporters would quit mugging for the microphone to express their dissatisfaction and sympathy and actually do something other than lay blame. They can start by opening up their checkbooks, or better yet, getting in that pickup truck they used for their last "man of the people" photo-op with a tool box and some bottled water and head for Louisiana or Mississippi. Rolling up of sleeves is also advised. I am kind of stuck here for now, so I am sending a check to Catholic Charities. TTLB has an excellent list of places to contribute with links and phone numbers.
