More Katrina

Over 3500 homeschooling families have offered to take in homeschooling Katrina evacuees - so many, in fact, that Operation Extended Family is having trouble locating displaced families to help.

Tonight's Nightline featured residents of the Desire Street area of New Orleans (as I learned, inspiration for "A Streetcar Named Desire"). Yesterday, my husband came across a website for Desire Street Ministries, which has temporarily relocated its headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia. DSM is accepting donations as well as runing a people locator database for members of their community.

I must say, I have never been more proud to be a native Texan.

You have every right to be proud to be a Texan. You guys have more heart than half the country put together. God bless Texas!
