in an emergency any fluid is good fluid.

what was interesting to me what how what happened in NO colored the entire relief effort.  most of the blame belongs to the press who blew the relatively few bad things way out of proportion. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That was my point exactly Kathy. Thank you for sharing that.

We have some terrific people here, most very kind, that would give you the shirt off their back, not to mention our good food!

Our government just needs to stop the enabling, but isn't that true just about anywhere?

this may be a little off topic, since firearms in Japan aren't really a thing...
