Even though it is a monetary donation, I can't wait to help in some small way.
Good for you times two Neapolitan - for making a contribution, and for nipping in the bud the prospect of some religious controversy too!

^ Frownland has always been nice to me so I hate to say it, but yeah, sometimes it's best to have a rest from playing intellectual games and focus a bit more on our common humanity.

Whoever you are, a flooded home with no power for weeks is miserable - and for some, that's the best they can hope for. IMO it's not appropriate that a thread about this disaster is turned into a joking troll fest. There are plenty of other threads for that after all.

...and Maria I guess as I don't suppose that hurricane will get a thread of its own now.

Nothing is clear about the post-truth, power-out world of Puerto Rico at the moment.

From what I saw on US mainstream media, for a week Trump was dragging his feet, tweeting about the NFL and not allowing foreign-aid ships to lend a hand, all of which seemed to justify Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz's angry comments.

Now I'm seeing on YouTube another story, about a Mayor who is playing politics with her own people, not co-operating with FEMA, and hiding the fact that she has a truck-drivers' strike on her hands, which is why there's a supply bottleneck at the San Juan docks.

I wonder which truth you guys are buying?

...

Maybe living on a island that isn’t self-sifficient isn’t such a good idea. Those are my thoughts.

‘same as living in a city bellow sea-level.

Puerto Rico is a logistics nightmare. They were spending so much time trying to figure out how to get supplies to tge people along with the Jones Act holding up progress then just finally getting lifted. Geraldo Rivera goes there and reports he doesn't see anyone dying while only staying in San Juan. He hasn't gone around the island to see the people that are slowly starving and being dehydrated. Those people ARE dying you idiot. He jusrlt wants to look at death toll numbers.
