Looks like every blog on the planet is recommending charities -- and I must give it up for the Instapundit-affiliated humans, they're spending all day tomorrow ceasing to cry socialism and pointing people at worthwhile charities. Good on them. In the spirit of bipartisanship, I will even abandon my Presidential Vacation Watch. I ... won't ... even ask ... why he did't just ... go straight to Washington ... after yester -- ... GAHHHHH.
*pant pant pant* Okay. Ooookay. Letting it slide. We're all together in this.
I won't presume to write too much on Katrina here -- there's far more and better coverage out there than anything I can do. And we know how I feel about grief-surfing. However, I will point out that some people have suggested checking your company's donations policy for matching funds. Excellent idea.
I will continue the tradition of personally matching your donations done through the Paypal button (with all due respect, linking to a bunch of charities is one thing. We put our damn money where our mouth is here.)
Money slammed through the Kung Fu Monkey hut will be doubled. I did get an e-mail about the delay in donation to the end of the month, but I've got to say -- folks, rebuilding New Orleans and Biloxi will take YEARS. The refugee crisis alone will be at Condition Red well through 2006. This will streamline the administration of the funds here, and also allow me to give you some value for the donations.
So, as always, if you're amused by the site, drop us four quarters. If you think I'm a jerk, write a bigger check and strip me of my ill-gotten gains -- all of it going to a desperate and noble cause.
Meetings this afternoon, then a spate of writing essays for the spec-monkeys in the crowd.
