TUAW friend and fellow Weblogs, Inc. blogger  Mike Schleifstein (I hope I  spelled that right, Mike!) was recently displaced by Katrina. Go donate to the people who are going to help him and everyone else get back home as soon as possible. Of course, he might be able to get back a little sooner if were able to file a claim with FEMA, but he's reporting that the on-line claims form requires IE 6, and, more importantly, IE's non-compliant JavaScript implementation; even changing the UA string in Firefox or Safari won't help. Hopefully by now he's found a friend with a PC, but I really hope the government realizes soon that if you're filing a FEMA application, you probably don't have much choice about what OS you're using.
