Wednesday, September 14, 2005 :::

Last night I dreamt that the universe was under attack by unspecified evil galactic overlords and their star wars-esque foot soldiers. I had to discover some technological secret in unlit library that was about the size of an airplane hangar and just as empty. After some climbing among the rafters and attempting to put together a workable disguise, I realized that I was going to have to go out and face the foot soldiers in phaser to phaser combat. Except they had the latest and best in firepower and I had to make do with the built in phaser in my cheap, low-budget came-with-the-plan-free cell phone. And of course the fate of the universe depended my ability to wield my phone effectively, using it to fend off shots from soldiers, rescue prisoners, distract guards, and because it was a cheap, low-budget came-with-the-plan-free cell phone it sucked and I was getting shot at a lot and wondering why I wasn't given something with a bit more firepower to work with. And then I woke up and realized that I really could use a snazzier cell phone but am too cheap to spend the money for a better one.

fabulous john stewart skewering of the presidential response to the floods. it's quicktime, so not so dialup friendly. also, the best part starts about halfway through or so.

one thing about neglecting to post frequently is that I have an oversupply of emails that I've sent to myself that contain links to post which, by the time I get around to posting, are often a touch stale and everyone's seen them already. things like the exciting game of career girls, wherein girls can choose such promising lines of work as stewardesses and ballerinas. unless they're ugly. then maybe they can make it as a teacher or something.

also all the rage a while ago: a real-life life-size replica of the simpsons house.

Yet after 2003, the flow of federal dollars toward SELA dropped to a trickle. The Corps never tried to hide the fact that the spending pressures of the war in Iraq, as well as homeland security -- coming at the same time as federal tax cuts -- was the reason for the strain. At least nine articles in the Times-Picayune from 2004 and 2005 specifically cite the cost of Iraq as a reason for the lack of hurricane- and flood-control dollars.

There's a bunch of places to provide donations for hurricane relief, but America's Second Harvest devotes among the highest portions of its donations to relief (as opposed to additional fundraising). There's also the Rainbow World Fund, which accepts donations from the GLBT community for disaster relief. All this information from the ongoing help and coverage at boingboing.
