Operation Eden: The Surreal Life: East of Eden

Clayton James Cubitt: "And there it is, for now. The internet saved my family. My camera saved my family. I'm a high school dropout, but my writing saved my family. If this had happened ten years ago, my photos, my writing, wouldn't have saved anybody, because nobody would have seen it. It wasn't on CNN. It wasn't on the broadcast networks. It wasn't even on PBS. It was on a plain, small, free website, and that's the only reason Elizabeth saw it, and brought her family into the effort."

Say Goodbye to Romance

"Burger King is offering a $6000 signing bonus and $8 an hour to full time workers right now. You have to sign a contract promising to work in a hurricane affected store for 1 year. They are offering part time workers a $3000 signing bonus! There aren't enough fast food workers to open most restaurants right now, so they're in high demand."
