  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

  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

  [sigh]

    Dear fellow GISsers,

    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.). =


    If we're not careful, we might risk getting in the way of the relief =
effort by becoming part of the problem.

    Just a thought. Again, all my respect and applause to those who want =
to help, but a word of caution along with it.

    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.

       - beel
