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???
