Yahoo! News - Heinz Kerry Visits Hurricane Aid Center: "NEW YORK - Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators.

'Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids,' said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. 'Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes.' "

-- Who knew that she was a disaster relief expert..

I'm blaming it on the language barrier--you know the language between billionairesses and regular people.

The thing is she makes a bit of sense but needs to realize she was there to say 'Keep up the good work, it's great when people pull together to help others'

Not, Hey you dopes don't send clothes.
