I just found out that my friend Jed's father was murdered earlier this week. I should be working right now, since Al is watching the baby and it's quiet here in the living room, but I find that every time I look at the letters "JSP" I see "JED". My thoughts keep drifting to Tacoma, Washington (where Jed is right now) and to something Jed did for me years ago during a time of great stress. I need to return that favor, small and ineffectual as it might be.

In the meantime, if you have a moment to spare today, please send a prayer Jed's way.
