YES . . .

I have heard and read so many lame, stupid and disgusting things in the past few days. It makes me want to shout, "What the hell is the matter with you people?" The racism, the finger pointing, the absolutely unconscionable blaming of people who have lost everything - I want to give these people a piece of my mind; I want to rip them a new bodily orifice; but all I can manage is, "What the hell is the matter with you people?!"

Regarding the slow response, I think the best comment I've heard is one that I didn't actually hear myself. My husband was up before I was this morning, watching the news. He told me about a brief interview they did with a general. The general compared the situation to a football game. It's half-time and we're down 50 to nothing. Later, after the game is over, we need to review it and figure out what we did wrong in the first half, but right now we need to put forth our very best effort in the second half. I like that - no denial, no excuses, but right now let's get to work and do our best.

I like it too.
