I'm glad to hear that you and yours are OK, Bingocards. I was wondering how to find out.

I'm deeply grieved about the losses in Japan. The New York Times published a heartrending photo of parents looking at their daughter, who was killed while taking a driving lesson. The mother was reaching out to touch her daughter's face, still in the crushed car. Terrible <tears>!

I have donated to the American Red Cross, which has set up to transfer help to the Japanese Red Cross. The Japanese Red Cross can only take donations in yen.

One comfort in this tragedy is that the foresight, dignity and cooperativeness of the Japanese people surely saved thousands of lives that would have been lost in many less-prepared nations.
