1. So many good, compassionate and thoughtful people in the world. You can lose sight

of that here sometimes with all the judgementalism that's been going on. I doubt these great people are asking anyone why they did not evacuate. Just seeing a need and addressing it.

2. "It's their fault, let them suffer" is Ron Paul talk and I'm stunned to see it here in any form.

 

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, stood by his libertarian beliefs on Sunday, saying that victims of the violent storms and tornadoes that have battered a band of states in the South and Midwest in recent days should not be given emergency financial aid from the federal government.

"There is no such thing as federal money," Paul said, on CNNís State of the Union. "Federal money is just what they steal from the states and steal from you and me."

"The people who live in tornado alley, just as I live in hurricane alley, they should have insurance," Paul said.

3. Insurance does not cover everything, and there may even be exclusions from insurance coverage

for some of the losses.

4. Yep. And there's also the simple "do unto others as you'd have them do to you" and brotherly love

 

and compassion.
