Amazon figured out which way the wind was blowing, so to speak. They have a donation page now for Katrina victims.

You sure ring that bell called "traitors" pretty easily, G-rod. One of these days, you're gonna bend that bell and then it won't ring. Maybe declining to help storm-ravaged people is seedy, scummy, shows a lack of human compassion, whatever -- but in what way does it become "Treason?" and in what way do these people become "Traitors?"
And then what would you call the "Columbia Christians for Life" who not only decline to help but publicly state (first) that Katrina hit LA because of the 10 Abortion clinics in the state, and when that wouldn't wash, then said it was because of the planned Southern Decadence Labor Day Party (Gay-theme), to prevent it. In other words, too bad, but you people deserved it.
Lack of compassion is not necessarily a characteristic of "liberals" or "traitors." "Unfeeling Assholes" would do fine as a descriptive.

You've got a point. I'll substitute yours in.

As for the bell, there will, I fear, come a day when my ringing seems only faint and distant in comparison.

Other aspects of the Bush-bashing aside for the moment, anyone who can describe August in Crawford, Texas as an "idyll" with a straight face may already be beyond the reach of psychiatric help.
