Our Southern Friends...

This weekend, I'm thinking about all the folks in the path of Hurricane Ike, as it bears down on Houston and other southern US cities. I'm especially thinking about my new friend, Ana Maria Rodriguez, who left Houston with her sons yesterday to seek shelter a few hours inland. I hear that up to 4 million people are without power today, and that the power company says it may take two to three weeks to have it restored. Tough times ahead, I'm sure.

Take care, all of you southerners. We wish you well and keep you in our thoughts.
