  1. I oredered a couple just now. I almost decided to buy ’em for Olivia’s whole class, but then I’d wind up in the shit with ruby’s class, and I wasn’t gonna go $150 bucks for these today. I suspect though that every kid’s parents will be looking at these when my girls show up at school with them!

  2. Might be cool bracelets, but this is NOT a 501(C)3 corporation and does not check out with the IRS as a charitable organization. Your donations are NOT tax deductable and this just might be a scam. I hate to think it, but there are some scam artists out there that will capitalize on anyones misfortune.

  3. How did you check them out? The list of 501(c)3 organizations on irs.gov is published as of June 30, 2005, so clearly any hurricane relief organization is not going to show up there yet.

    Here’s what the Renew New Orleans web site has to say about it:

    “Let’s start with the second question first: “Are you legit?” The Renew New Orleans Foundation is structured as a non-profit organization. We have filed a 501(c)3 application with the IRS. We filed an “expedited” application, but our lawyer has advised us that it takes more than a month for the IRS to process our application. Once we have received our IRS confirmation, we will post it and our tax identification number on http://www.renewNOLA.org. In the mean time, if anyone wants to double check the legitimacy of the Foundation, I would be happy to put you in touch with our lawyer.”

  4. A cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, ‘You’ve been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask.’
    The cats says, ‘Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors.’ God says, ‘Say no more.’ And instantly, a fluffy pillow appears. A few days later, 6 mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat.
    The mice said, ‘All our lives we’ve had to run. We’ve been chased by cats, dogs and even women with brooms. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn’t have to run anymore.’ God says, ‘Say no more.’ And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
    About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him and asks,
    ‘How are you doing? Are you happy here?’
    The cat yawns and stretches and says, ‘Oh, I’ve never been happier in my life. And those Meals on Wheels you’ve been sending over are the best.
