Cindy Sheehan and the Veterans for Peace Bus have rerouted their tour to Louisiana, setting up a Camp Casey in Covington with food and supplies collected in Crawford, Texas:

We have set up a permanent Camp Casey at the Pine View Middle School, 1115 West 28th Avenue, Covington, LA. We are using the school to support Veterans For Peace hurricane relief efforts for the people of the region. We are supporting The Red Cross with power, medical supplies, kitchen service, food bank and distribution, internet communications and trained medical personnel.

They're looking for donations of relief supplies like baby food and sterile gloves and equipment for a mobile Internet center to "communicate needs and direct displaced people to services."

If we could get John Roberts and Kanye West on that bus, we'd have a harmonic news convergence.
