The Onion has put their entire archive back online. How awesome. Here’s my fav old story:

Also, here are a bunch of charities you can work with to help Katrina victims (found on npr.org, via eJacqui):


The McCormick Tribune Foundation, based out of Chicago and affiliated with the Chicago Tribune, is matching 50 cents to the dollar for every donation made up to $1 million, and 100% of every donation and match are going to Katrina aid, as they are paying all of the administrative costs themselves.
