I hear that Houston is looking for volunteers in the Astrodome.=20
Also Baton Rouge has doubled in population this week - I'd be willing to
bet they need help there, too.=20
=20
Can you believe - I heard that they are having trouble in Mississippi
with TOURISTS!
Yup - rubber neckers driving through the wreckage with digital cameras,
getting in the way of work crews.=20
=20
[sigh]

	Dear fellow GISsers,
	=20
	To anyone pondering going up to the Gulf Coast to see if they
can help, I'd like to applaud your spirit, but also warn you that you
should probably only do so as part of an organized relief effort
(American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Human Society, GISCorps, Civil Air
Patrol, etc.).=20
	=20
	If we're not careful, we might risk getting in the way of the
relief effort by becoming part of the problem.
	=20
	Just a thought. Again, all my respect and applause to those who
want to help, but a word of caution along with it.
	=20
	The rest of us can do our part by staying home with our families
this weekend so that others can go and be with theirs, and considering a
donation to one of those fine organizations.
	=20
	   - beel

		=20
