Pakistan Flooding: A Disaster of Epic Proportions

While we've been busy debating mosques and the Dr. Laura racist radio rant, Pakistan is nearly completely under water. 20 million people have been dispaced by flooding in the country's northwest region. With 1,500 people killed by the flooding and millions in need of medical attention, I hope we all can pull together as we did with the relief efforts for the Haitian earthquake. Click here for a list of organizations accepting donations.  They desperately need our help!
