I"m still shocked that instead of taking care of your own people first Perry & Parks are giving $500 to Katrina victims. Now don't get me wrong I feel badly for them but share the wealth. If you're going to do that for them do it for the homeless women & children on skid row. Wonder how many of them will be getting $500 gift cards?

I can't believe other elected officials will risk being seen with Rocky.

Rocky should take the press conference to heart and "act responsibility during the holiday season [and beyond]."

Who says they're not taking care of their constituents in addition to helping Katrina victims?
