Sorry, I know I'm being deliquent.

Kayla got into medical school at LSUNO. We're here for another four years.

Our last article is this Saturday. Lots of pictures, many with The Beeb!

That is all.

Superdelegate Nagin endorses Obama,

"Senator Obama represents a new generation of leadership, one that can help heal the divisions of the past and unify this country so that together we can build a stronger future,"

Because C Ray would know what that looks like.

Two thoughts.

Wow, multiple posts in one day, after very sporatic posting.

Anywho, two thoughts.

1) I'm rather disappointed in the New Orleans blogging community because there seems to be little, if anything, about the Burma cyclone. Apart from snarkiness about Laura's condemnation of the Burmese government's lack of response, there's not much. No calls to help, no identification with what they're going through, nothing.

2) We are still rather lucky to be living in the United States. While we got little help from the Federal government, at least they weren't acting to prevent aid from getting to us to the extent the Burmese junta is. The Feds did decline international help, but at least we had infrastructure remaining that made recovery possible. Sure, you had to go to the Home Depot in Baton Rouge or Lowes in T-daux, but you could still drive there.

Anywho, to all eight people who read this, go contribute. There certainly won't be any benefit concerts. We're too busy obsessing over Obama/Hillary '08.

At least it's not just The Beeb...

who eats and destroys everything. This is why we don't let her sit unattended in the car.

It's a small world...

Loss of coastal barriers ups the death total in Burma.

Location, Location, Location.

Apparently, US disaster-relief resources are situated closer to Burma than Louisiana.

President Bush called on Myanmar's military junta to allow the United States to help with disaster assistance, saying the U.S. already has provided some assistance but wants to do more.

Wow. The cyclone was Sunday. What do we have to do to rate the same treatement as a fucking military dictatorship that just finished with a brutal repression of its own people?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for sending the Burmese whatever help they need. Just wondering why the double standard?
