Angry At Myself.

I heard word on the radio that the local American Red Cross is conducting a boot camp for disaster relief volunteers for the New Orleans/Biloxi catastrophe.

I'm a Coast Guard veteran with years of search & rescue experience.

I worked in a hospital for several years after that.

I know GPS and GIS, I build 3-D models of submerged terrain, I've analyzed aerial and satellite photography...

They need me. I could help

And I can't shake this stupid cold.

Given my tendency to slide into pneumonia at the slighest provocation, I'd just be someone else they'd have to take care of.

So here I am, at my little temp job, typing up mailing labels.

Fuming.

I could help, dammit.
