21. Think of
how many donations were given to the Red Cross from the NBC telethon last night that are never going to make it into NO. That is what makes keep the RC out of NO so criminal...it is deliberate negligence.

I noticed Bush was asking people to donate to the Red Cross, as well. One cannot help but to wonder if he knew that the plan included keeping the Red Cross out of NO.

I understand that the Red Cross is everywhere else, but deliberately withholding the Red Cross from New Orleans smacks of favoritism.
