Arthur C. Clarke's status in Sri Lanka
Michelle Malkin reprints an email from Arthur C. Clarke in tsunami-ravaged Sri Lanka.
The impact on Clarke individually seems to have been some loss of property and shaken employees, but no physical harm. Interestingly, he lists what he considers to be worthwhile tsunami relief charities: Oxfam, CARE, and a local development charity called Sarvodaya. The Sarvodaya needed items page is here.
She also links to a lengthy profile published in 1999. Strange duck.
BTW, Little Green Footballs links to Digital Globe's QuickBird Images of Tsunami Sites.
Also: Here is an oft-linked page on Amazon.com to contribute to the Red Cross. They have over 100,000 contributions totalling over $7 million so far. Amazing.
