Maine is Awesome
The response to Katrina here has been great to see. Baldacci is sending direct help to the affected areas. Snowe and Collins are pressuring Bush to open up the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to make sure the hurricane doesn't lead to a spike in oil prices.
The most heartwarming thing I've heard, however, is that Stephen King's WKIT (100.3 FM) in Bangor is playing song requests in exchange for contributions to the Red Cross. Every dollar pledged is being matched by Stephen and Tabitha. Long live local radio.
You can contribute to the Red Cross online here.
