In fact, with September set as the month for our annual fundraiser, we were about to email all of our subscribers asking for help for the coming year (anticipating, of course, a very enthusiastic response).

We were all affected by the events of two weeks ago, but for some of us, the impact may have been far more direct and personal. For those of you who did suffer losses, our deepest sympathies go out to you and your loved ones..
