Update from the publisher

Dear readers,

Thanks to DD, T, RW, TLFC, KM, JJJ, CF and JR, whose generous support for RRND/FND brings our year-end fundraiser total to $1,605 toward its goal of $5,000! I will do my best to get personal thank-you notes out ASAP, but I do beg your indulgence because (hurricane update time) …

… as of last evening, my family and I have moved out of our church/shelter and into a hotel for at least a couple of days. There’s still no power at our house, and even if there was I wouldn’t throw the master breaker on until I know the extent of the damage. Two large pine trees came down on the roof, busting at least two trusses, caving in the kitchen and (I think) bouncing off the central air/heat unit outside. I don’t know but what there was damage to wiring, etc. as well.

Our landlord is dealing with lots of damage reports from lots of tenants, and of course he’s not the only one, and the contractors coming to repair the state of Florida are dealing with all kinds of supply and power issues. Millions of people are worse off than we are, so I’m trying to maintain some patience and sense of proportion.

In the meantime, I can get back to work in a somewhat normal manner. It’s not my office in my house, but at least I’m no longer working on an 11″ laptop in the dark via a “hot spot,” so I can start (emphasis, START) catching up on things that got set aside for a few days.

Thanks to all of you for your patience and support, and welcome back to full email editions of RRND/FND!

Yours in liberty,
Tom Knapp
