2. Well, it's 108 more than I've placed
My g/f moved in with me and we offered her house to a Katrina family. Mom, dad & 4 kids moved in Sunday. Our co-workers have responded with thousands of dollars in cash and truckloads of clothes, toys, food, furniture and household items. Dad already has a job at a local car dealer and the kids will be in school next week.

We are just ordinary working folk. It ain't rocket science.

3. The St. Tammany Parish President is so fed up,...
last night on the news he gave FEMA 48 hours to come up with some plan to distribute the trailers. If the deadline passes without any resolution, he is taking Sheriff's deputies and will distribute them himself. It's ridiculous that there is a lot full of FEMA trailers in Slidell that are just sitting there unoccupied.
