Friends in Japan, we here in the States are completely horrified by the news
reports and the footage of the disaster in Japan.  I know there are a number
of you here on the LIST, and for what it's worth there are many of us
sending our thoughts and prayers out to you in this time of great distress.

I know it is off-topic but I'd love to hear that you are safe and any
reports you might have from the quake.

hang in there (ganbatte kudasai!), --Hal B.
