As Lowell is fond of saying, the practice of law has been unduly interfering with my blogging of late. I may have to resort to Glen Reynolds "hit and run" style quips with hyperlinks. My first is to a post by Kyle-Anne Shriver at American Thinker regarding Carol Blashek, and her all-volunteer group Operation Gratitude, which since its founding in 2003 has sent over 319,000 care packages to our troops in Iraq. For more information on Operation Gratitude, please see the links at Jewish Current Issues. Better yet, go to the Operations Gratitude website and volunteer or make a donation.
