Even though Wonkette ridiculed it, she is on board with the people that brought you the Adorable Rodents blog rating ecosystem scheme to have this Labor Day Weekend be Blog For Relief Weekend. I didn't even know about this effort when I made a pitch for Catholic Charities in my last post. I have given my meager amount and listed this board on their big list of paticipating blogs, not because I have a large devoted wealthy generous readership, but because every little bit does help and I feel I should do something.
Now, the whole Blog Scoreboard seems a little self-congratulatory to me, particularly since contributers have to go to a form to fill out their donations for the blog to get credit. I really don't give a damn if anybody credits me or not, give to your favorite charity or your own church if you think the money is better used there. Just do something.
There, I haven't felt so good about myself since I was 10 years old and getting doors slammed in my face by suspicious geezers that thought my impromptu neighborhood canvassing on behalf of Jerry's kids was a scam for ice cream money.
Update 9/3/05: My friend in Mobile is doing well. They were out of power for 3-1/2 days starting as soon as the storm hit Monday morning. His house suffered minor damage, but less than the hurricane deductible. He thinks FEMA will reimburse him for the generator and chainsaw. He thanked me in advance for my contribution as a taxpayer.
