I'm not going to post anything original, because at this time, I have nothing to say, no analysis or advice to offer. But I will put up some links here to direct you to people in the know:
The Survival of New Orleans blog - the blog of Michael Barnett, who works for an internet nic company in downtown NOLA. This ex-specops soldier is literally holding down the fort. If you want a first-hand account of what's going on down there, check it out.
Instapundit has a put up a list of a whole lot of different charity organizations you can donate to. I personally plan to donate to The Salvation Army. I hope you will too.
They could also use a lot of intangible help, as well - prayer. Pray for law & order to be restored to the city. Mob rule and thuggery is preventing aid and rescue workers from improving the situation.
Update - I just found out that my employer will be matching every dollar contributed by its employees, so i'll probably do that - you should check with yours as well.
Offended? Intrigued? Contact my manager.
Here begins your journey into the mind of everybody's favorite asian, and I don't mean Jet Li.
What follows is the somewhat inane, mostly irrelevant, and self-important ramblings of a man on the brink of madness.
Welcome... to the Chu.
