    At least---where are the musicians and actors? Are they not interested enough in America to come up with a private fundraiser ???????

    LOL even Hugo Chavez told Jesse Jackson that he was willing to send aid to hospitals, churches and schools!

    Hello?? 26 billion will not begin to cover it. All became much worse today. I expected to come back tonight and see this prominently here.

    While all were chasing Mally and mods/admins:

    Please don't tell me you are waiting for the UN to help, links at site:

    My prayers go out for the people of LA, MI tonight. This morning the #'s in Superdome decreased to around 8k. Then the waters started rising, the Lake is emptying into the city. A hospital needed to evacuate to Superdome. Police had to break into pharmacies to get medicine for those in Superdome. People drowned in their attics today.

    My readings tonight are putting cost at 50-80 billion. That doesn't cover mental health. G-- almighty!
