The Red Cross’ Secret Disaster – ProPublica

Facebook does not allow this to be shared, interestingly…

It’s a great article I saw mentioned in Ted Koppel’s “Lights Out” on how the Red Cross mismanaged their emergency response in Hurricane Sandy.

I’ve seen many of these same issues with the Red Cross from working with their Miami chapter; while they do a good job of helping out small groups of people after things like house fires, they only appear prepared to deal with a larger situation and are not given the resources to actually provide mass care.

Now why does this URL get Zuck’d?

And every last inch of me's covered in Gaston

The above image was used in the fabulous YouTube Poop “Beauty and the Beastiality”.

You know at this point that storm could leave me floating out to sea and I couldn’t even be mad because I’m just going to keep thinking of Gaston’s song.

Fictional or not, he’s the only dude I know of who can break a belt with his neck muscles. I still can’t really grasp whether that’d be realistically possible or not.
