There’s a category 5 hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. 100,000 people cannot escape now from New Orleans. Let’s talk about that. Check out Daily Kos, they are asking people to volunteer their homes to those who are evacuating the NO area. Best thing the internet has ever been used for. God, let’s hope it helps!
Let’s also hope that in the future our government tries to fix situations like this before fixing other countries.
