29. Two things
Edited on Thu Sep-18-08 10:34 AM by dgibby
First, there are several good AP articles on AOL today, including pictures of the damage (and the lioness in church). I don't know how to post the link, but go to AOL under hurricane news. Second, I am appalled by some of the posters in other hurricane related threads who, instead of showing empathy and understanding, have made it their life's mission to castigate the op, to the point of mental cruelty (imo). It disgusts and sickens me that some DU's can be that callous in the face of such suffering. Everyone here refers to DU as a family, and I agree, but right now, it's a DYSFUNCTIONAL family, at best. At worst, I am beginning to think some of the "family members" need a serious intervention! :mad:
