I just heard a phone interview on The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch (have no idea who he is) on CNBC with David Perez, a businessman who has used $250K of his own money (he raised an additional $250K) to fly his private jet full of supplies into regions affected by Katrina. He's on a mission to Mississippi now because he says that Gulfport is officially out of food today. He was screaming and choked to tears on the phone talking about the lack of support for those left behind, and for the workers currently there to keep order, find surivivors, and begin recovering the dead.
He damned America's wealthy businessmen -- Bill Gates got called out by name as well as the fuel providers who are giving no breaks on gas for those traveling in and out. Mississippi has apparently given Perez the rights to land on the airfield any time, and he's back on his way with food and water.
I googled him. And I say, Go Mr. Perez.
