Just a roundup of recent experiences of bloggers who've volunteered at evacuee shelters:
Perry sees a dichotomy.
Ray came down with a cold; he also has some happy news, and more techno-volunteering information.
And finally, benefit time: Tonight's the night for the Saint Arnold's Red Cross Fundraiser.
The only way to celebrate New Orleans is to have some good drink, good food and good music. We're going to supply two of the three: drink and music. You are welcome to bring your own tasty food. Music will be courtesy of the Zydeco Dots. Laissez les bon temps rouler! Admission will be $12 per person in advance, $15 at the door. 100% of the proceeds from this evening will go to the Red Cross. We will also be donating all the profits from any glass and shirt sales that night. So be charitable and have a good time! Here are the details:
