CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- The United States is pledging $350 million to help tsunami victims, a tenfold increase over its first wave of aid, President Bush announced Friday. ``Our contributions will continue to be revised as the full effects of this terrible tragedy become clearer,'' he said. ``Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this epic disaster.''
Glad to see this happening -- Wonder if the UN will see us as a little less "stingy" now?

Former NFL star Reggie White died Sunday morning at his home near Huntersville, N.C., ESPN's Chris Mortensen has learned. The former Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end, a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame who retired as the NFL's all-time sacks leader in 2000, turned 43 on Dec. 19. Sara White confirmed her husband's death. "Today our beloved husband, father and friend passed away," Sara White said through a family pastor. "His family appreciates your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of Reggie White. We want to thank you in advance for honoring our privacy." Nicknamed "The Minister of Defense," White had 198 career sacks with the Eagles (1985-92), Packers (1993-98) and Carolina Panthers (2000). He went to two Super Bowls with Green Bay, winning a ring after the 1996 season.

Well, it's political season in Wisconsin; so we had a guest speaker at our Region convention. No, it wasn't Kerry--that visit fell through--but Dick Gephart stopped by to make a very rousing speech. I did enjoy hearing from him, but a lot of us wondered where all that fire was back during primary season.

Well, I'm off to my PACE leadership convention/ school. Rumor has it that we're going to have a special speaker at the Tuesday night banquet. Since John Kerry is campaigning in Milwaukee on Tuesday and appearing in Madison on Wednesday.......hmmmmmm, could it be possible?

I AM taking Shawn's little camera along, just in case. Fifty mile rule or no, there WILL be pictures!!!
