You may not know it, but we have some very friendly readers from the Republic of the Philippines—good photo folks just like the rest of us around the world. At this moment the poor Philippines—without much protection, and with a large population—are being slammed by a monster storm that makes even Hurricane Katrina pale, a super-typhoon said to be "at the high end" of Category 5.
We're deeply concerned about our Filipino friends and all their countrymen, and send them our thoughts and fervent hopes for their safety.

JJ: "Hi Mike, just a friendly reader from the Philippines here. Appreciate the sentiment. There's going to be quite a number of lost homes, and the evacuation centers are going to fill up. But we're resilient, and when the news photographers arrive, you can bet your pool table that we'll have our smiles on, ready for our closeup. God keep us all."
