Hurricane Katrina damage mounting
My post on the Hurricane Katrina disaster in the Mississippi Delta has attracted some nice comments from the US, and one, at least, has posed another interesting question. Where is Bob Geldof, George Clooney and the rest of the "Celebrity Circus" who are so quick to pour their emotive appeals into anything involving anywhere in the Third World?
Rather conspicuous by their absence as far as I can see.
The blog has an interesting title "Two Babes and a Brain" and I will, having read this and several other posts on their blog, be adding them to my own blogroll for future visits! Thank you ladies for the hat tip and for the compliments concerning my sentiments on this disaster, like you I will be finding someone I can make a small donation to to help out, but I hope that more will do so too!

I have to admit that Bob Geldof is slightly disconcerting in his appearances. I have never really stood by his word, as his ridiculous sincerity, even on comedy shows, leads me into a dull state of hypnosis. My prayers go out to those who lost their lives in the hurracaine, and my God be with all those who have lost friends and faimly.
