Reaching Out to Japan

Just a final word as yours truly is packing to head for the highway.

We have more dramatic footage here from the previous week, showing the effects of the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan. Earlier today, we mentioned the President's appeal to donate to any one of a number of organizations, linked at the website of the State Department's Agency for International Development.

Another option is in your own hands, assuming they're holding a cellphone. The American Red Cross is accepting donations via text messaging. Simply text REDCROSS to 90999, then confirm with the reply message, and ten dollars will go directly to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief.

Okay, where's that toothbrush?
