Best wishes to all those affected by NZ earthquake

Christchurch Cathedral before the earthquake...

...and Christchurch Cathedral after today's earthquake.

There's been another big earthquake near Christchurch, one of New Zealand's major cities. At least 65 people are dead, hundreds more are still trapped as I type these words. It got walloped last September, but that tremor hit in the night and nobody died at the time. Today's shake hit during the day and the results are devastating.

If you want to do something, donate at New Zealand's Red Cross website. If that site's jammed, donate via the Salvation Army of New Zealand site and specify your money is for the ‘Canterbury Earthquake Appeal’. Minimum is a fiver - you can spare that, can't you?
