The Intersection

i-e8b9f65a6c2090d28f07cb3cf2f7f174-oxfam.jpgThe Intersection just got an email from Oxfam America, asking for our help getting the word out about the urgent need to help cyclone survivors in Myanmar. To quote in brief: “In the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis – which struck Myanmar on May 3, washing away entire communities – conditions remain dire for millions of people. Food and water shortages are rapidly increasing risk of disease, and more bad weather threatens those who have survived….With death tolls climbing – the latest count puts deaths above 120,000, with 500,000 homeless – we are urgently looking for support from outlets like yours in helping to raise awareness about the disaster and ask for support from your readers.”

    I hope they have they worked a deal with the astrologers…

    “It was revealed last night that the Burmese tyrant blocking aid to his cyclone-devastated people is being advised by ASTROLOGERS.”

    Why should I donate to the Junta? They’ll confiscate it all anyway.
