|Gary DeYoung of San Antonio writes with an excellent idea and a kind offer:|
|With the thousands of displaced families spreading out from New Orleans looking for a place to live while their city is rebuilt, you might think that one of the larger relief organizations would have a means in place for people to volunteer to open their homes to Katrina victims. I have searched in vain - and frustratingly, nobody seems to be working to match displaced families up with people with spare bedrooms.|
|A Red Cross volunteer told me on the phone that they have to use their own shelters for liability reasons. |
Mr. De Young offers accomdations for two people, but he also has a brilliant idea: FEMA could set up a database online for those who are willing to do likewise.
Aren’t Americans amazing? Except for the liability lawyers.
