Is there something about rat packs that I haven't noticed before?

BBC News said:
The 500,000 ration packs being sent by the MoD - armoured metal boxes which contain enough food for 24 hours - will be flown to the US on Monday morning.

There's too much levity here. Unlike their president, we should be helping the American people affected by this disaster.

That's right. If we adopt stern faces and stop laughing, the relief efforts will be more effective. If we wail and gnash our teeth then maybe the floodwaters will recede too.
