A Thanksgiving message from Donna Brazile...

Happy Thanksgiving!

One of my favorite political pundits is Donna Brazile, the CNN contributor and Democratic strategist. She is one of those rare commentators who can make her case for Democratic values without demonizing people who do not share her views.

Donna Brazile is also a wonderful ambassador for her home town of New Orleans. She has been up to her eyeballs for the past couple of months taking care of her extended family who were so devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

These comments lead me to draw attention to this piece written by Donna Brazile in the current issue of Time magazine. Titled, Don't Give In to Katrina Fatigue, it is an impassioned plea for the American people to support the rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf Coast "now that the cameras have moved on."

Read her article. It will provide food for reflection as we again celebrate Thanksgiving.


This story in today's Independent (UK) will also provide food for reflection. It's about Catherine Green --- the "Cindy Sheehan" of the UK.

Update #2:

This article in today's New York Times provides an update on the Katrina housing debacle. And here is a Thanksgiving message from the editors of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans.
