Screw FEMA, call the Boy Scouts

We had to go run some errands this afternoon. When we got back, Julie checked her e-mail and found that the den mother for Matthew's Cub Scout troop sent out an urgent request for Scouts to come to the Dallas Convention Center immediately to set up for Louisiana refugees fleeing from Gustav. Matthew put on his Scout uniform, and he and Julie set out for the convention center downtown.

Julie just phoned from the convention center. "Everybody's gone," she said. "The Scouts have already been here and set up 1,000 cots. There's nothing left to do. It's all been done. I tell you, if you have a natural disaster, screw FEMA, call the Boy Scouts."

Heh heh heh. Love us some Boy Scouts.
