This is Angela Hoy. Our Managing Editor, Brian Whiddon, has boots on the ground in the disaster zone, assisting victims of Hurricane Michael. I am doing his job while he is offline and without cell service. Please pray for him and the thousands of other volunteers and victims. Please also consider donating funds to the organization he's working with RIGHT HERE. They are in desperate need of baby formula, diapers, fresh water, food, gasoline, medicine, and many other essential items. And, if I screwed up today's issue in any way, please accept my apologies. He's far more talented than I am with technical tasks! (Yes, I know the fonts are inconsistent below but I don't want to interrupt his important rescue work to ask about it.)
