Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

I was in a mall today and saw four teenage boys with falling-down hip hop pants and sideways baseball caps stopping other teens to encourage them to give a ten dollar donation to Haiti by texting, and showing them how. I asked them if they were with a school group, and they said they weren't. They had just discovered that they could send donations like that and decided the idea took hold. They looked urgent, on a mission, and so happy. I was moved.
