   I received the following e-mail on Saturday, Sept. 15:

   Hi Bill. In a tribute to our people who died Tuesday and to our rescue teams, soldiers and government officials working on this tragedy, could you put up a special edition of American heroes, such as The Fighting Yank, The Liberator and/or some others next month? Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Erin


   Why wait until next month? I'm presenting this special issue now as a tribute to those involved in and affected by this tragedy, as well as those whose lives will be forever altered by the inevitable consequences of this tragedy. Directly below this paragraph is a link to PayPal's relief donation page. PayPal will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to the National Disaster Relief Fund of the American Red Cross. Please give during this time of national and global crisis. [If at any time in the future this link stops working, please let me know via e-mail and I will attempt to update it.]
