Tornado Ally

As expected, Bush offered the usual meaningless platitudes yesterday to the victims of the tornados that devastated wide swaths of the southern states in this country, killing at least 54. "Prayers can help and so can the government," he mealy-mouthed. Of course, the former don't really work even though they might make people feel better, and he has just as little intention to implement the latter as he did to actually help New Orleans. So once again it's up to the citizens. Please ignore the "pay for my hobby" fundraisers currently being run by popular liberal bloggers who don't need the money, and the political fundraisers for Presidential candidates who also really don't need the money, and consider giving instead to people who do. Monkeyfister, who lives in the area, has the details.
