Do What You Can For New Orleans

To all foreigners...most of us would politely like to ask you to shut up.

Across U.S., Outrage at Response (Account Required, Skip Ad)

I am absolutely disgusted," said Sajeewa Chinthaka, 36, watching a cricket match in Colombo, Sri Lanka, according to the Reuters news agency. "After the tsunami, our people, even the ones who lost everything, wanted to help the others who were suffering. Not a single tourist caught in the tsunami was mugged. Now with all this happening in the U.S., we can easily see where the civilized part of the world's population is."

Reference the following: Tamil Tigers, decades of revolution, poverty and war. Then repeat that statement.

This is an admittedly emotional reaction by me. I keep running across these foreign jackasses. How about one week of understanding before the recriminations. If you can't do that...keep it to yourself.

To the Democrats...keep up the heat. Any pressure, political or otherwise, that gets people in gear is good. Once this is under control, I will open up with both barrels on you. Until then, you do service by adding criticism, whether it is founded or not.

I am helpless today. There is nothing I can do other than send in my donation and rail online. I will be highlighting misinformation in the coming days. Don't take it the wrong way. It's just what I do.
