Too Bad George Harrison Isn't Around To Do Another Concert

Five days after tropical cyclone Sidr roared ashore with 155 mph winds and a 16 foot tidal surge, Bangladesh continues to pick up the pieces. 3100 people are confirmed dead from the category 4 storm, and some rescuers warn that the toll may top 10,000 once remote areas reached.

Even though Bangladesh is halfway around the world, the United States is contributing heavily to the rescue effort. Two C130 cargo planes and several naval vessels have already joined relief operations.

Americans should be proud of the help we're providing. After all, it's better than what we did for the people of New Orleans.
