Please help University Hospital. FEMA has basically abandoned them and their patients because it's become too dangerous to get to the hospital because of the gun-toting looters.

if you genuinely want to help, rather than merely dramtize yourself, don't waste time and resources deluging overworked authorities with amateur advice and complaints.

One generally good idea: no matter where you live, donate blood if you can. In any major disaster blood banks always run short.

The people who are getting assistance are those who have gotten the attention of the media. These are posts I've taken from the Times Picayune--much of the info has come off scanners.

I'm sorry to offend you and interfere with the stellar job they are doing down there.

Giving money to the Red Cross is really more useful. Media here are overworked, understaffed, and can't respond to out-of-state complaints very well.

The most interesting news coverage is on CNBC. It's amazing how everyone is chipping in to give us oil and how fast they are hooking up the refineries.
