Post-Sandy Silence

Kottke is suspending posting for the time being:

The situation in New York and New Jersey is still dire** so posting stupid crap seems frivolous and posting about the Sandy aftermath seems exploitive. Information is not what people need right now; people need flashlights, candles, drinking water, safety, food, access to emergency medical care, a warm place to sleep, etc.

The message of how bad things are in parts of the hurricane-hit area does not seem to be making much of the mainstream news. I feel powerless – I’m not even sure who I should donate to that will actually help.
