Here in Cleveland, they did a program last night where *every* local channel combined for a 1-hour event from 7-8PM. They took phone-in donations for the Red Cross, and said they had 1300 phone operators available. When I called the first time, the line was BUSY. The second time, I got through and had to wait for about 1 minute. Fantastic to think that they utilized that capacity!
I'll be honest, I am a cheap bastard and don't donate as often as I probably should. But I gladly gave for this cause. I still cannot fathom the magnitude of this disaster.

I find that there is a small group in the Democratic party that is somewhat akin to that libertarian wing of the GOP. The people who are drawn to the Dems because they tend to be less gung-ho than the GOP about morals laws, abortion, drug laws, etc.
