[Dixielandjazz] The Gulf

Fri Sep 2 21:24:28 PDT 2005

Hi Jim,

I get four news programs, BBC, Sky, ITv, and Channel Four, all are reporting 
on this disaster and the tardiness, to say the least, of the US government 
to help these poor people, every British reporter is shocked that nothing is 
being done and commenting about the amazing coincidence that when at last 
help comes in so does Mr. Bush. Boy, does he get a lot of stick.

Stunned is a very mild word to used, everybody I know is deeply angered.
