In the context of giving a donation, which is the subject, people are up in arms because a rich guy didn't give enough.
IMO, there are things that happen that are worthy charities, and in my head, this isn't one. Neither would giving me money because I live in the snow belt.
Terrible loss of life, families devistated, wouldn't wish that on anyone, and the stories are sad. That is separate from give your money to that.
There are two things that exist in this world; insurance, and government disaster funds (which, I think is called FEMA down there).
If that makes me look and appear like an *******, then I am one. I certainly would not take away your right to give people money you deem worthy to give, but I would love to see that money go towards the long list of worthwhile causes that have 0 back up other than public donation.
