stop the world, i want to get off.

How the fuck is this happening in the richest country in the world?

I can't watch any more footage of it. That woman begging for help from Bush was just too upsetting. As are all the racist wingnuts who seem to be delighting in the misfortune of poor black refugees, or are announcing that Katrina is God's punishment for New Orleans's "decadence".

It's outrageous. An absolute fucking disgrace. The only thing that assuages the pain a little is doing something to help the people who have arrived here in Texas seeking a place to stay. A church in my neighborhood is doing a donation drive tomorrow morning for toiletries, diapers, clothing, infant formula, to give to those stranded here in Austin. The school district here has opened one of its auditoriums for people who managed to evacuate ahead of the storm, but have used up all their money on hotel expenses. So I'm going to head over there on Monday, a holiday, and see what I can do to help out. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to take it any more.

You know we've gone through the looking glass when the only public official who has stepped up to the plate has been Texas Governor Rick Perry. I don't agree with the guy on anything politically, but he has opened the doors of the state to those who have nowhere to go.
