I know I'm posting a lot of partisan, political posts here on the blog, since I'm about to wade through Minneapolis and St. Paul in search of trouble (as well as that killer music show at Harriet Island). But I cannot in good conscience leave you without offering some aid. This is a time when you can help make a difference in other people's lives. It's wonderful that Gustav is a much weaker hurricane than feared (only a Category 2 storm), but there will still be a lot of devestation and broken homes.
Give to the Red Cross. Please don't sit back on the sidelines. Get involved. Make a difference.
