Just a bit of administrivia: I’ve added a link in the right column to the Red Cross. They only offer a few banner ad options, and this was the best-fit, at least for now. Please take a moment and donate what you can. You can even direct how your donations are used. Also, if you can, commit to a monthly auto-donation. Even if its cash-value is lower than your one-time donation might have been it’s a lot more effective. Monthly auto-donations make it much easier for them to do things like forecast their financials and make it easier to manage their limited resources.
Also experimenting with the minimally-impacting Google Ad to help cover the site-costs, etc. Shoot some feedback if you think it’s too egregious or you see an ad that really seems out of place or inappropriate.
