I try to keep things on topic in my little corner of the blog world here, but the stuff happening out in the Gulf is overwhelming and provocative of some kind of action. I just made an on-line donation to the Feed The Children organization for sending food out to the New Orleans hurricane victims. If you can afford it, please give to the charity of your choice. Here’s a good list. We can watch the world at a distance or try to be some kind of force for good, even if in small or relatively nominal ways. It’s a choice we all make.
