From Ohio and Pennsylvania to Hurricane Katrina Followup

Back from Ohio and Pennsylvania, from Aunt Betty, Aunt Wilma, and Uncle John; cousins Jeannie, Ken and Pat; and "kids" Michael Dylan and Katerina -- to peace and justice work -- and follow-up on Hurricane Katrina.

Rachel Maddow and Air America Radio are onto the story -- but will the so-called liberal mainstream media pick it up? THE STORY: FEMA knew and Bush knew. Money was allocated and some spent, but some $250 million (44%!) was NOT spent on shoring up New Orleans' levees but diverted instead to the Iraq invasion and Homeland Security. Hurricane Katrina only caused some damage in New Orleans. The city escaped the brunt of the storm. But the huge storm (whose huge size was influenced by Bush's global warming) weakened the New Orleans' levees which were NOT fully upgraded. And so the Bush administration has MORE blood on its hands.

For the advance story and on-target warning, see the Houston Chronicle's 12/01/01 article Keeping Its Head Above Water

And last, but certainly not least, DONATE TO HELP. Linda M. Young posted some good choices on her blog - Yet Another Journal. Thanks for helping --and let's all of us work to put money where it will help not hurt: Money for the environment and for relief, not for war.

Peace hugs,
Kate Anne
