Hurricane relief

If you're like me and you ignore all the big weather stories because you hate the way the TV news people blow everything up into a huge storm, wake up! This one is dead serious.

Instapundit has a huge list of mostly blogger-recommended charities. Give now!

And if you're like my older son, who wants to drop everything and go to New Orleans to help, consider this: Don't do that unless you're very well trained, and do it only through established organizations. FEMA has announced that you should not "self-dispatch," which appears to be bureaucratese for going out alone.
