AMEN Bill. Most of what we see coming from overseas is slanted, political
propaganda from folks who are ignorant of the proportions of this event. As
you say, the disaster area is the size of the UK.

So please folks, knock off the political BULLSHIT and don't believe
everything you read or see in a 10 second sound bite on your local TV. Could
we have done better, sure . . . but then that's true of EVERY situation that
occurs during one's life.

If you want help, put your actions where your mouths are.
