I have absolutely nothing insightful or profound to say about the whole ridiculously horrible Katrina thing. I'm having a difficult time simply processing the magnitude of what's going on down there, much less being able to talk about it in a way that doesn't just sound cribbed from Heart of Darkness.

I'd like to figure out how I can deal productively with my sadness and support the community in a meaningful and appropriate way.
