Knights of Columbus donate $2.5 million for Katrina relief

Many people are comparing and contrasting the recovery efforts in NYC for Sept. 11th and the current ones in New Orleans. I have to say while the contrast is pretty severe, the destruction in the south is much worse than in NYC. We are talking about a whole city being wiped out plus many other coastal towns. Still, the response has been slow and ineffective so far. Many of us will NEVER forget that the Knights of Columbus pledged a million dollars for the families of firemen and policemen who perished on 9/11 and the checks were delivered (mostly by hand via insurance agents) sooner than almost any other aid.
