THIS FUND IS IMPORTANT FOR TWO REASONS...

1. Relief goes right to victims
2. MONEY HELPS LOUISIANA KEEP IT'S INDEPENDENCE!!

From Washington Post:

Behind the scenes, a power struggle emerged, as federal officials tried to wrest authority from Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (D). Shortly before midnight Friday, the Bush administration sent her a proposed legal memorandum asking her to request a federal takeover of the evacuation of New Orleans, a source within the state's emergency operations center said Saturday.



Blanco made two moves Saturday that protected her independence from the federal government: She created a philanthropic fund for the state's victims and hired James Lee Witt, Federal Emergency Management Agency director in the Clinton administration, to advise her on the relief effort.


Bush keeps pushing country to donate to the Red Cross. Now we know why, Red Cross is more under Government control.

PLEASE get the word of the Louisiana Disaster Recovery Fund out to all sources you can think of. Please donate. Please keep kicked.

I'm of two minds over this. On the one hand, the last time I looked, the Federal Government had almost nothing but religious donations on their list.

On the other hand, Louisiana is only one of three states hit hard by this disaster.
