Ton Zjilstra reports: Katrina: Foreign Aid 95% Unclaimed

Ton makes a great point here:

The Washington Post uses the word ‘allies’ where I would write neighbours friends and/or empathizing and sympathetic strangers. Allies to my mind is war rethoric: it divides the world in allies and enemies, which is a rather simplistic picture of the world. It also feels as if it obscures the reason and motive behind the offered aid. Allies are/feel duty-bound to give it, friends and neighbours help because they want it, because they’re human.
