You all probably already heard about this but I missed NPR most of the week so just heard on Weekend Edition. My grading stopped in sobs as the story evolved.

He was an amazing man. He apparently walked 16 miles before his death too. It is so sad. I feel for the family.

Since working with the American Red Cross I just want to encourage everyone to create a disaster kit, preferably one for the house and a small version for the car. I know that currently I have nothing in my car for water, food or to start fire. Emergencies can pop up any time.

If anyone needs a starting point for what to have in a kit...

great idea sp! tks!!! blogging for a while in here before today's exam - really I'm procrastinating on checking email since posting yesterday's set of grades... whenever you feel nostalgic for your AU job don't forget to factor in end-of-semester whining so that the perspective is as objective as possible! nyernt nyernt
