    CELEBRITIES SADDENED BY KATRINA RESPONSE


    With celebrities like John Travolta, Sean Penn, and Chris Rock lending a hand in the Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts, others are letting their words make their mark. Colin Farrell, Matt Damon, and Jamie Foxx are just a few famous faces who have publicly spoken out against the federal response to the disaster.

    Colin Farrell told Access Hollywood, "If it was a bunch of white people in the Hamptons, I don't have any doubt there would have been every single helicopter, every plane, every means that the government has to help these people."

    Jamie Foxx volunteered at a shelter for victims of Hurricane Katrina at the Dallas convention center and on yesterday's (September 6th) Oprah Winfrey Show, said he'll never forget a 62-year-old man's words about how Americans were mistreated in the aftermath of the storm: ["What he couldn't take was the blatant disregard for someone like your grandmother -- 80 years old, sitting there, nobody coming to help her. It should never happen. These people are Americans. Some of the things that have been said and everything has just been so sad, that we would treat our folk like this. And, it's a day I won't forget soon."]

    Musician Harry Connick Jr., who waded through flooded New Orleans streets looking for stranded residents, said, "This is the United States and it's going to take me a long time to wrap by head around the fact that these people weren't helped sooner. It's not like they died in a hurricane, they died because they starved to death three or four days later in bright blue skies."

    Sean Penn told Britain's GMTV, "There are people dying and the U.S. government is not putting the boats in the water, I think that's criminal negligence. I don't think anybody ever anticipated the criminal negligence of the Bush administration in this situation."

    Matt Damon
    told Access Hollywood that he supported rapper Kanye West's comments about President Bush during NBC's Katrina benefit Friday (September 2nd), "The press doesn't ask the President any questions, so he never has to defend any of his policies. So this guy with his moment on live TV made a statement that, hopefully, now Bush will come out and address."


    Not all celebrities are critical of the hurricane response. Instead of focusing on the negative aspect, Sahara star Matthew McConaughey ventured to a church shelter in Zachary, Louisiana that's housing 130 displaced people. As he said on the Oprah Winfrey Show, his experience there made him believe that the disaster should be about helping and sharing with others: ["I didn't necessarily understand the scope of it. I'm still trying to digest that. I think we're all going to have to digest for some time. There's so much work to do. The one thing that is pure about helping out with a tragedy like this is service, share what you have, and that's the best way we can help."]

                  maybe they should give a couple of millions each, then MAKE SURE IT TURNS INTO AID WHICH GETS TO N.O., and not get "stuck" in the Red Cross' bank accounts, or get aid "stuck" outside N.O. in warehouses or Wal-Mart trucks.
