Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Hey, remember all the folks who lost their homes in Hurricane Sandy? Yeah, I'm lookin' at you Barack Obama. You promised them "assistance." And you too, Chris Christie. You said you'd cut red tape.
So why are thousands of people still freezing their butts off in the dark?
Arctic air gripped parts of the United States on Thursday, making life miserable for people still without heat months after superstorm Sandy.
In Brooklyn, New York, where about 200 homes slammed by Sandy in October remained without heat, "It's just getting colder and colder," said Doreen Greenwood-Garson, chief of the Gerritsen Beach Fire Department.
Nightly, the volunteer department has loaded its ambulance with donated space heaters and free hot meals and delivered them to shut-ins, said Greenwood-Garson, a real estate broker. Already it has given away a total of 60 space heaters and each night about 50 meals, she said.
In Long Beach on New York's Long Island, the Martin Luther King Center, a community gathering spot, ran out of donated space heaters, said James Hodge, a city employee who is coordinating relief efforts there and is without heat in his own home.
"I even gave out my own personal heaters that I was sleeping with," Hodge said.
He and his two brothers have been sleeping in several layers of clothes under piles of blankets near pots of hot water, their breath still visible in the cold of their home.
The center has been hosting more than 100 people during the day who needed a warm place to stay for a few hours, particularly school-children, who are being provided hot food, Hodge said.
There are more than 2,600 homes on Staten Island still without heat. Three months after the hurricane hit. And long after Dear Leader and his celebutard buddies packed up their "relief" vans and moved on to the next cause. Gun Control is where it's at now! If you're still freezing in the dark, they don't have time for you anymore. Unless you need a gun to protect what's left of your house. Then they'll say "no."
Remeber when George Bush was vilified for sending a bunch of trailers to New Orleans after Katrina? Yeah, I suspect Staten Island would welcome a few of those trailers right about now. Too bad Dear Leader sold 'em for scrap.
Like I've said all along: we're on our own up here. If you rely on the government to come to your rescue, you'll be one lonely dude. Thank God for guys like Mr. Hodge. Although, given Dear Leader's track record, it's only a matter of time before the EPA shows up to put a stop to the space heater give-aways. After all, those things contribute to Global Warming.
We have a contact in Staten Island who is operating a "Tent City" and has
reached out for the following items:
> Paper Towels
> Toilet Paper
There are many people suffering the effects of Hurricane Sandy and are still not in their homes.
If you can donate any of the above items, please bring them to Notre Dame by 10:00 tomorrow. Friday, January 25th. We will be making a delivery in the morning.
Is FEMA the best, or what?
