Use your anger

If, like many people, you are angry at your government's failure to respond to the horror in the Indian Ocean, use your anger to shame them into action. I read today that the British public's donations to the relief fund have outstripped the commitment by the Blair government, and forced it to triple its donation. I notice also that the UK is currently offering three times what the US is. In another example of people power, bloggers in the region are getting the truth of what is happening out, bypassing traditional news media.
