Off Topic: For Discussing The Earthquake In Japan

I saw a lot of comments in other threads talking about the earthquake in Japan.  Certainly football talk pales in comparison to what I feel about Japan.  Right now I'd say I'm using it as an escape to NOT think about the sad stories and horrific images that keep coming over the various news media outlets.  I don't think it is a bad thing for us to have a thread to talk about how we feel and share words of encouragement.
It would also be nice if people might suggest ways to help.  Unfortunately, at times like this, people with very low morals set up bogus charities and send out fake spam requests of assistance in order to profit from the misery of others.  This happened on 911 and in the recent disaster in Haiti.  Be aware of this and ask a lot questions before you act.
