Feh. Stooopid hurricane.

So me and some friends are trying to get a "hurricane party" together. We're getting everyone we know to bring water and canned goods so we can deliver them to the Red Cross. On top of (or more accurately, beneath) that, I'm spending most of tomorrow running around with some friends of mine hitting up local stores and various businesses for the same purposes.

You know one thing that really bothers me? (And this may offend the more religious people out there.)I'm d--ned sick of people saying "Oh, our prayers are with you!" and then not DOING anything. You know what? Prayers are a lot like wishes. they don't do jack sh-t unless you put some elbow-grease behind them. And I don't want to hear any of that "Well, not everyone has time/money/whatever to send to whoever, but at least they can PRAY." You know what? That's bullsh-t. The five seconds you spend "praying" can just as easily be spent clicking on a link or two and donating at least ONE EFFING DOLLAR to any one of a number of agencies that are providing food and water to starving men, women, and children in New Orleans. You can even say "Amen" once you're done sending that dollar, if you really want to get the point across.

Speaking of which, here are three really good ones.

(Edit: I had posted three links to the Red Cross and two other first-response organisations, but apparently, that is "soliciting". So, you'll just have to find your own links.)

Prayers are fine and dandy, folks, but the Lord helps those who help themselves. And I'm pretty certain the Lord would be a lot more willing to help those who help others.
