One of my dearest friends is in the French Quarter this week. It is the THIRD YEAR in a row where he has given up his week-long annual vacation to instead spend his time helping to gut and rebuild houses in a devastated area near the Ninth Ward. Each volunteer stint lasts one work week and its two surrounding weekends. By my calculations, that's 27 days of dedication to people in need that he doesn't even know. Can you tell that I'm impressed? You get my kudos, Jon.
