Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    This started from another thread. When I actually saw the list of stories in the NYTimes, I was so impressed by their coverage I thought it deserved its own thread. They're really on top of the story.

    hmmmmmmm - a morning of creating this post?? Ah well, it really makes me feel good.

    I seem to have become a letter writer. I think I'll write to the NYTimes to compliment them on how well they're covering this on-going breaking story. If anyone feels like doing the same, here's the general address for comments on news coverage:

    and the site that lists everyone you could write to - publishers, editors... is here

    The list might be useful to attach to other letters as well.

    Thanks Island Finn for NYT Article Links

    Dear Islandfinn,

    I was just thinking this morning, after seeing the latest NYT article, that it would be nice to see how many they've done so far, and how to easily access them. Lo and behold, here it all is, neatly packaged and ready to access. (I would never have gotten around to doing it.)

    My first thought when I saw your post was, "wow, this must have taken some time!". And it looks like it did. And I thank you so much. For this post and the many others I've seen from you that have useful information.

    Kind Regards, Wayne

    thanks for the thanks tee and maxine - not needed, but nice to see

    good catch levi - methinks you have a mind like a steel trap - mine is more of a steel sieve

    wayne - what a lovely note - find myself wanting to hang my head with red cheeks, scuff the ground with my sneaker top and say "aw shucks"

    have enjoyed your posts as well.

    warm regards back
