Epic names, Fear Tactics and the F Word

Instead of a normal witty (or attempted witty) opening to Five for Friday, I’d like to start this week’s edition noting how shocked I am at the continued damage and loss due to Hurricane Sandy. Knowing my family and others are without bare necessities and/or power saddens me. I hope that you can find it in your heart in some way to donate some funds to the Red Cross to help with the relief efforts. If you are in the Boston area and like beer, you can donate money to this good cause while tasting some fine beverages at the Boston Beer Company. Click here for more information on the event, all proceeds go to charity, if you do go, be sure to stop by and see Nick Gosselin. Have a safe weekend and look forward to catching up next week.

Thanks for dropping the link, brother. It's disheartening to see the damage from yet another storm of the century. We're seeing these more frequently, it's apparent that we can't accept them as abnormal events. We need to build better response mechanisms.

It's kind of shocking to me people in NY and NJ are still without power, gas, and food. Aren't we supposed to be a first world country?

@ginidietrich parents have generator, but no major power at all. Came back for a few hours then lost it when the snow came through...
