This has nothing to do with the book biz, but if you're about to send a donation to aid relief efforts in Haiti, you want your dollars to go where they're most needed. Today on Talk of the Nation I heard about an organization that rates charities. Do yourself a favor and check it out: www.charitywatch.org/ . There's a handy index and also a list of the top-rated charities. Oxfam's on that list, by the way, and the Red Cross is not.
In the dark times, will there also be singing?
Yes, there will be singing.
About the dark times.
