I don't want to sound like a Scrooge here, and it's great that all of the money is being raised, but.....
1) where we're all of these athletes (NFL especially ) when Katrina and Sandy hit ? Where are the mass advertisements for donations when a blizzard knocks out power in the Northeast ? There are still people who did not get any funds to rebuild. Texas was asking for federal funds that they themselves denied to states like NJ after Sandy.
2) now that they have set a precedent, what happens next time ? What happens when Houston gets hit again ? What happens when Florida gets blasted ? Will the athletes be there again ?
The headlines are nice, and congratulations to the NFL for raising so much. I'm sure the devastation was incredible, but Houston wasn't the first, and they won't be the last, to see a natural disaster.
Global Climate Change / Shift ; you can deny it or call it a hoax ( but if you do, you're kind of an idiot ) is a reality. It's a proven entity, and its changing at an exponential rate. Personally, I don't think it can be reversed or slowed. The Earth is tired of us, and she will rid herself of the destructive forces within 200 years ( my opinion ). We will all be dust in our coffins. Unless you received a formaldehyde saturated trailer from FEMA.
