Happy Boxing Day!

I'm spending the day after Christmas doing some shopping and whatnot, including Mass. I intend to pick up regular blogging this evening.

In the meantime, please read Kevin McCullough's site for news on the tragedy in Sumatra, an earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale.

UPDATE, 8 PM CT: The quake apparently unleashed a tsunami that killed almost 12,000 people, one of the worst natural disasters of all time. Indonesia has at least a million people homeless and the casualties came from eight different Asian nations.

We need to pray for the people who died in this catastrophe and do what we can to reach out to those who survived. The best bet for that will be the International Red Cross, despite any misgivings about their politics. I'm donating through the American Red Cross and hope you will join me.
