I stand corrected to a point. I heard on the Howard Stern Show, that there were reports of price gouging on gas and such, but it was isolated. The mayor of New York, the Great Rudy Guliani has taken measures to ensure that such nonsense does not happen in and around NYC.

As far as giving blood, I'm looking into that today.
As far as getting gas...NO. This is the very panicked reaction the terrorists want. I am totally disgusted with retailers, raising their prices to absurd levels because of this crisis, and dismayed at people's stupidity and herd-of-dumb-sheep mentality in rushing the gas pumps. THERE IS NO SHORTAGE!!!
BTW, the government issued a statement that retailers caught in price-gouging would be punished. In my book, taking advantage of a situation such as this should be SEVERLY punishable. After all, what is more important, a f***ing dollar or our national security???
