Saturday morning service

Just a quick note to everyone that I worked a 10-and-a-half-hour shift for the Red Cross early this morning, and I'll be back there at 11 p.m. tonight. Which is why I don't have much new stuff today. I'll try to regain my priorities soon, I promise.

I'll just say this: are you in for some stories! Screw the news; you won't get this stuff anywhere else. These are the people to whom the news never lends an ear. Stay tuned.

Call me an embittered displaced New Orleans resident, but something in the tone of this rings of opportunistic "altruism". Be careful, Ian. You're not the only person saving the world right now, and the light you shed on people's personal tragedies may come out looking dirty despite the "spin" cycle.

Right. I worked 16 hours of the past 24, becoming violently ill in the process, just because I want to be a hero. Excuse me for wanting to offer my perspective on the subject.

Why so defensive? It was just a warning not a condemnation. Do it for the right (or left) reasons, not to self-aggrandize. That's all.

Well, obviously. I hope I don't carry myself off as that much of an egotist.
