Time to help fellow Americans

Dear Editor:Where are the celebrities and the former presidents who were so visible when asking for tsunami relief? We’ve got our own tsunami, folks, but perhaps it just isn’t glamorous enough to help one’s own citizens as it is to help less fortunate on the other side of the world.Aside from the human suffering we’re viewing on television, we’re witnessing the potential disappearance of a city millions of Americans have wonderful memories of; many honeymoons, anniversaries and birthdays were made memorable by a weekend in the Big Easy.It’s time to dig deep in our pockets to help our fellow Americans who are in great distress and will remain so for many weeks to come.Leah SchultzAspen and Houston
