Invented the Interweb and saved lives
I think Al Gore is a nutjob (I'm sure if he knew who I was he would think the same thing about me).
However he did more than was required of him in the wake of the Katrina disaster. Gore funded two evacuation flights and used his political connections with the Governor of Tennessee and Norman Minetta to cut through some red tape.
More about it at Fox .
Way to go Al.
