If you want to use that pic, feel free, you don’t have to credit me. Not like it’s a great artistic job or a unique idea, just an important cause.

Personally, I don’t have any great ideas of what to do to help (this op-ed ends with “…give war a chance.” WTF?!?). I have heard good things about Doctors Without Borders (also known by their French name ‘Medecins Sans Frontieres’ or MSF… MSFWorks? I digress.). Or if you prefer something that sounds more American, there’s Operation USA (known for their quick response, not for quickly updating their website).

Hey, whatever happened to that “dream team” from the ’05 Tsunami Relief? I know one of them’s kind of busy working for his wife (yep, it’s true… Barbara Bush is selling t-shirts over the internet and G. H. W. is helping stuff the shirts into envelopes… no wonder the shipping/handling charge is so high… I REALLY digress).

With any luck, the Myanmar Junta (NOT a good name for a rock band) will become a little more helpful when they’re through with the fake election to consolidate their power. They couldn’t have just postponed it, since they used astrology to select the perfect date (now we know where Nancy Reagan’s astrologer is). Come to think of it, if there are over 100,000 less voters, this really IS the perfect time to hold a fake election… (okay, too much cynicism, time to rest)

Your Turn...
