I don’t know anyone in New Orleans or Baghdad. But at the moment I’m feeling overwhelmed by terrible news at home and abroad.

It’s times like this when you can feel that the Internet provides too much information.

“This too shall pass,” I know. But sometimes it’s hard to believe.

Update: Commenter TedM suggests posting links to some of the organizations helping the victims of Katrina. Probably the best place to donate is the American Red Cross. Instapundit has a list of others.
