Ed Morrissey of Captains Quarters – one of the premier blogs out there, for the uninitiated – is organizing a January 12 World Relief Day to help aid the victims of the South Asia tsunami. (Ed was on Hugh’s show earlier to promote the effort.) How much of your take-home pay on January 12 can you donate to World Vision? – to make a real difference while also showing that this nation is not “stingy” like many European critics have falsely claimed.
On a totally random different note… As we were walking into the office building this morning, Mrs. MountVirtus and I ran into Bob The Daily Blogster and his wife, who had come in to give blood. (The Bonfils Blood Center is on the 3rd floor of our building – The Independence Institute occupies the 4th.) Almost completely by accident, we had one-third of a quorum for a meeting of the Rocky Mountain Alliance of Blogs.
A fine welcome to 2005. Indeed!
