Just wanted to post a note expressing my sadness for everyone effected by the hurricane and the flooding. Especially the people still stuck in New Orleans. And remind everyone who can to donate time or money or both to the people who have lost everything. This is the the link google has up for donation collection. But I don't really care who you donate through... just go help as much as you can.
And a list of places to donate to including some to help the animals too.
