But I just made a donation to the American Red Cross of Greater Chicagoland - and you should, too!
For once, Gov. Blagojevich seems to be doing his part. While visiting a Des Plaines shelter for flood victims, he declared seven counties disaster areas: Cook, DuPage, DeKalb, Grundy, Kane, LaSalle and Will. Blagojevich also took to the air to survey the damage. His declaration "allows the state to supply assets and emergency workers to areas affected by the flooding, and also opens up the opportunity for the state to ask for federal disaster assistance."
I'm sure you'll get to it when you and Richard Daley stop bickering like schoolboys, but the Red Cross has been there from the start providing shelter and supplies - so help 'em out today.
Donate Now, yo! (Barack Obama would approve this message)
