charlie,
an environmental disaster with major loss of life had occurred, and my first thought was 'i have a friend out there, got to find out if he's ok.' took me days to get on line, but i had faith and was greatly relieved to see you'd posted minutes before. i am so sad. the magnitude of this is mind boggling, but i was so happy you were safe it took days for me to really get angry at how serious this is becoming.
