34. Sigh. I get that. Its one of the reasons the Katrina response was so
horrible, at least from the Red Cross perspective. Thousands of people were calling begging to help, but the folks who could tell them what to do were completely overwhelmed. Plus, in southeastern Michigan, we used to have eight full time staff doing the "volunteer coordination" stuff, and now (thanks to budget destruction) two PART TIME PEOPLE who are NOT working part time are trying to do the same amount of work.

Sorry, off topic rant. :)

I hope Nancy's office is getting flooded with hundreds of inquiries -- that would be awesome!!! :)
