So whose fault is it all those people died?

First things first: The victims of Sunday's disaster need help. There are several good lists scattered around the web of relief agencies you can donate to and I'm not going to try to make a list of my own. I will note that when Scott Ott takes time to research and write a non-humor post it's worth reading. Click here to do that. For a wider range of choices I'd start with this AP list on Fox's site, then do some surfing if you don't find anything you like there. The only other recommendation I'll make is don't give money to the U.N.  Some small part of what they're given might eventually reach the people that need it, but I have my doubts.

Between problems accessing the net, a trip to the VA, and various other factors, I'm running way behind schedule for the week and the only way I'm going to be able to touch on half of what I want to today is to do less excerpting and more pure linking than I normally try to do. With that said, I strongly recommend you read Michelle Malkin's post here, and be sure to follow her links to this Tech Central Station post and this Opinion Journal post.  Then read this Power Line post, then this one and this one, and follow the link in that last one to this post at Fraters Libertas.  (If that last one leaves you wondering who "Nick" is, click here and here as well. )

Just once, why can't we just take time to pray and do what we can to help without having to grind a political axe? I've seen estimates ranging from 80,000 to over 100,000 dead already, with the number climbing by the hour. At least that many more will die in the next few days if help doesn't reach them in time. Can't we help them first and worry about assigning blame later? Please?

Note: I hate to have to do it but I'm turning on comment and trackback moderation. If you post a legitimate trackback or comment I'll do my best not to be too slow about approving it. If the only reason you're here is to advertise your porn, music, or penis enhancement site you can kiss my sweet ass.

I agree. And the comment I heard on the radio about it being "interesting" that these countries are mostly Muslim (which they aren't, by the way), made me sick to my stomach. Can't people just mourn and help instead of trying to justify this as God's wrath?
