Trip called off
I wimped out on my plans to go to the Gulf region and help with hurricane relief. The confused situation, the approach of Rita, and my shaky knees and back convinced me that it would not be a good idea for me to go. I did meet with Keith, a nice guy who lives about a mile from me. He is heading south this evening, travelling with Ann, a woman from Oberlin, Ohio. I gave them some money and offered my logistical support from here at blogger central. Hopefully they'll find a place where they can really help some people. I'll try to follow their progress here on the blog if and when I hear from them.
