Aesop wrote the title of this post about 600 years before Christ was born. And though more than 2500 years passed before the city planners of New Orleans ignored this warning, they now have an opportunity to do something about the destruction. And so do you.

High resolution images are being updated regularly on Google Earth, the source of the above image. Search for the FEMA trailer site for Residents of St. Bernard and go North East to see where this image was taken.

Spread the word. Don’t scream that the government isn’t doing its part. $81.2 billion worth of damage won’t be fixed overnight, especially with a war going on. But it’s been 19 months and you can’t depend on the media to remind you to help.

Do what you can. Do a search on New Orleans Relief and contribute money to those in place down there. Help them do their jobs.

What do you think?
