Relief for Japan

Hey! I haven't said a whole lot about the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear emergency in Japan because I just don't have a whole lot to say. It's just awfulness stacked on top of awfulness, and just when you think it can't get much worse, it does.

Anyway, no pressure to anyone, but here's a link to the American Red Cross in case you are interested in helping out. I heard a spokesperson from the Red Cross on the radio today who was asking people to make donations, but to consider giving general donations (check the box that says "where the need is greatest") as opposed to specifically targeting the Japanese relief effort. By contributing this way, you can help The Red Cross to address the situation in Japan, but also allow the organization to stay flexible in case some other big, awful disaster rears its ugly head which also requires their attention (perhaps even a disaster closer to home which isn't receiving as much international media coverage).

So that's it. Hope everyone is having a good one! Hope I didn't bring anyone down. I just thought it might be nice to try to put this blog to work for a change!
