Pakistan Needs Help

While the United States has spent the last couple weeks bickering about replacing a Burlington Coat Factory in Manhattan with a religiously affiliated community center, floods in Pakistan have killed more than 1,500 people and left more than 4 million people homeless. Yesterday the World Health Organization announced that "cases of acute diarrhea have topped 204,000. The number of skin diseases -- such as scabies -- has topped 263,300." 20 million people have been affected and the UN "has termed the flood crisis bigger than the 2005 tsunami and the 2010 Haiti earthquake." Yet aid to Pakistan has been slow compared to other large-scale disasters.
