Sometimes, events remind us of what is truly important.
Please, I urge you to donate to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. You can make financial contributions directly to the American Red Cross. Many local organizations are also collecting various needed items. Here in the Lansing area, a local beer distributor is donating trucks, and the local media has started collecting bottled water from residents (including us) and the first shipment of 40,000 bottles of water is already on the road south. Another relief effort is being organized in Corpus Christi, Texas, by CoffeeCup Software.
If you were fortunate enough not to be directly affected by this killer storm, please reflect on the need and help where you can.
