Hmmm..where did the thread go where the lefty weirdoes were bashing Romney for donating food/clothing/etc instead of cash to American Red Cross? "Molinaro complained the American Red Cross "is nowhere to be found" and some residents questioned what they called the lack of a response by government disaster relief agencies."

Near her home, city employees had set up a sink where residents could get fresh water, if they needed it. There were few takers. "Nobody wants to drink that water," Giordano said. "Everybody's tired of it already," added Rosemarie Zurlo, a makeup artist who once worked on Woody Allen movies.

There was increasing concern about the outage's impact on elderly residents. Community groups have been going door-to-door on the upper floors of darkened Manhattan apartment buildings, and city workers and volunteer in hard-hit Newark, N.J., delivered meals to seniors and others stuck in their buildings. "It's been mostly older folks who aren't able to get out," said Monique George of Manhattan-based Community Voices Heard. "In some cases, they hadn't talked to folks in a few days. They haven't even seen anybody because the neighbors evacuated. They're actually happy that folks are checking, happy to see another person. To not see someone for a few days, in this city, it's kind of weird."
