there, why not join them?

A few clips from this morning's paper:

"Red tape hinders those who want to aid victims."

"FEMA rejects fuel, water -- volunteers kept out of region."

"Long lines of volunteers are being stopped on freeways on their way into New Orleans."

"Anyone who self-responded was *not* being put to work."  (emphasis added)

"Even skilled volunteers with the best intentions can be more trouble than help if they arrive needing food, shelter or fuel."

So I decided to stay home.
