12:24 am - Link to Susannah McCorkle tribute fixed.

I fixed the link to the Fresh Air tribute to Susannah McCorkle. It's worth listening to, if only for Dilemma and Waters of March. (Sad, though).

01:32 am - Pier 39

Gilda Cabral, Michael Korns and I wandered around San Francisco a few weeks ago. Here's a picture of Mike and I at Pier 39. Mike's in the leather jacket and baseball cap on the right.

What can we do to help?


Blood banks are probably VERY crowded right now, and may be for several days. Don't let that stop you. Wait a few days and go back. YOU are needed. YOU can help. Individuals with O negative blood are most needed, as O negative blood can be given to anyone regardless of blood type.

I know the Red Cross is mobilizing an enormous force right now.
Such huge mobilizations cost lots of money. Providing
shelter, and food, and clothing, and communications to loved ones costs
a fortune. If you can, send a contribution to the Red Cross to help
support the thousands of *volunteers* who are racing to help. Send
money if you can; clothes and such can wait until they say they need
them.


What can we do to prepare for a similar tragedy in the future?


The American Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Checklist:

The next time disaster strikes, you may not have much time to act. Prepare now for a sudden emergency. Learn how to protect yourself and cope with disaster by planning ahead. This checklist will help you get started. Discuss these ideas with your family, then prepare an emergency plan. Post the plan where everyone will see it -- on the refrigerator or bulletin board. For additional information about how to prepare for hazards in your community, contact your local emergency management or civil defense office and American Red Cross chapter.
