and speaking of inexplicable horrors, thank god someone appreciates the necessity of direct, concrete aid to the drowning and starving of new orleans. "slowly" and "ineffectually," you say? well, maybe if you call jesus slow and ineffectual!

>>Bush Pledges to Expedite Aid to Gulf Region; Day of Prayer Is Set

WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 - President Bush said today that he would work with Congress to "cut through the red tape" and get federal aid as fast as possible to people whose lives had been disrupted by wind and flood along the Gulf Coast.

"The government is going to be with you for the long haul," Mr. Bush said in a brief speech at the White House as he and Vice President Dick Cheney tried to counter charges that their administration had reacted slowly and ineffectively to the crisis. The president said that Sept. 16, next Friday, would be designated a national day of prayer and remembrance.<<

There are people in the world so hungry that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread. -- Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
