sqeaky wheels when the handle bar is missing

katrina has come and gone. she left thousands of people without homes. many have died. these are undeniably horrible things. that's why it makes me angry when people say stupid and out-of-proportion things about it.

the mayor of biloxi has described this event as "our tsunami." mayor, don't belittle the people of the philippines. this was your hurricane. the big one that you knew would one day come. it's a horrible, horrible thing to happen to your city and people, but don't compare it to the tsunami where people had a warning measured in minutes or no time at all.

i can certainly forgive the mayor for, what i consider, this faux pas considering the level of stress and emotion that he must be feeling. i have little sympathy for the hateful people that wrote this article. apparently, michael marcavage, director for repent america, has been enlightened by God of his plans to destroy this "wicked city." wasn't there something in the Bible about judge not, lest ye be judged?!?

...or maybe He is punishing america for it's hypocritical view of the world and absurd hoarding of power.

maybe hugo chavez isn't such a bad guy. or he's got a better p.r. person than pat robertson.

my thoughts and prayers are with all of the people who have lost loved ones and homes during this natural disaster.

here's one way to help.
