It isn't a big deal

NEW YORK - Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators.

"Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids," said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites). "Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes."

Okay folks, get off of those high horses of yours. She may have said it in a bad way but, she is absolutely correct.

Clothes aren't the most important things these people need. Water, food and electric are far more important. Listen, I think this woman is kind of scary but, get over yourselves.
