the moving finger writes

You know what I just did? I clicked a button and had a day’s pay deducted from my check and sent to China. And here’s the thing: that money is going to help people who need it for the most basic survival needs *but also* it’s coming through Taiwanese charities. The government here as pledged a couple billion and individuals have raised that much again and – here’s the incredible part – China has said they’ll accept it. (They’re accepting help from Japan too, apparently also a big deal.) So I can help the starving and just maybe further the cause of world peace, too, by moving one finger (well, and getting a little less pay this month). Pretty cool, huh?
