I just got off the phone with Bob Brigham, Lindsay Beyerstein , and Kyle from AmericaBlog. They are down in the Gulf Coast reporting and helping people to survive this tragedy. They haven't slept much in the last four days and are looking for some new volunteers to help out. They reported that Dr. Ernest Johnson of the Louisiana NAACP called today for Katrina evacuees in shelters to take control of their own destinies by forming SHELTER COMMITTEES. It's apparent that many of the people displaced need some leadership in the shelters that have been set up. I'll have some video sent to me soon about our conference call and you will see first hand what's happening to those who have lost their homes.

Can you help us out?
