Pathetic…

So far the US Gov has committed to disaster relief slightly less than we’re spending on the Inaugural celebrations. Sick. Mark Cuban is right – the best thing our Government could do is cancel these celebrations and re-channel the money to disaster relief. Since coming to America about eight or so years ago (frankly I’ve lost track) I’ve been really impressed by the warmth, generosity and friendship shown to me by Americas. What I can’t figure out is why the Government so consistently misrepresents (through it’s actions) it’s people.

HUGE kudos to Apple whose entire home page has been converted to a disaster relief effort. This is a stunning sign of social commitment – and from a company that depends so much on that home page for sales.
