At this hour, hurricane
Dean, a cat2 storm, is bearing down on St. Lucia and Martinique
. I know we have many friends in this area of the Carribean, and I think it would be appropriate if we all, in whatever religious tongue and faith you choose, say a prayer for those who find themselves caught in Dean's path. We can only hope and pray that all the people living or sailing in this area get through this storm with their lives intact, if not their vessels and possessions.
