MoveOn.org is running a site where people can offer housing for the evacuees. And there are entries like this that are kind of amazing:
We can provide a family of five or six a place to stay while rebuilding is complete. WE WILL PAY FOR YOU AIRPLANE TICKETS, WE CAN OFFER WORK AND WE WILL ASSIST IN GETTING KIDS INTO SCOOLS. We live on a small farm in a rural setting and can help a working family while things get straightend out.
This emotional 14 min. radio interview (MP3) with Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin calling for aid in bitterness and desperation will be an asset in the historic archives – no matter what history will tell about his role in the foreplay of the catastrophe. Quote:
It’s politics man and they’re playing games and they spin it!
