What an intense post! The graphic, the allusion, it's chilling. Excellent job. Sorry I haven't been visiting much, but I've been blogging a lot on NOLA, too, and it's all I can think about. It's all I read and watch, flitting from one news source to another, looking for hope, watching the thing unfold like a slo-mo accident. My job held out the possibility that I could volunteer for the Red Cross and go down there, but now it looks like they (my job) won't let me go before October. We'll send money like everyone else, but it's not enough. Everyone should be down there. The business of America should be letting our people get down there and stop this tragedy NOW. But that would probably interfere too much with 4th quarter profits.

Well, they'll probably be plenty of work left to do in October. And the Octobers for years to come.

Oh my gosh, they'll have plenty of work in October and it will probably be better organized by then, which will be nice. I wish I could go but it just isn't going to happen unless I took the kids, which probably isn't want the relief coordinators have in mind.

Compassionate Conservatism in Action

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
