Notes from JWR:

The central Philippines have been completely devastated by typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. I heard from a reader there that even some islands that were a hundred miles away from the path of the center of the storm may be without power for several more weeks. This will surely trigger a major public health crisis. Please pray fervently and give generously.

Oh, and I didn’t see this political spin coming, but this news article from Disarmed Old England certainly fits in with the globalist/statist agenda: Typhoon Haiyan: gun culture of the Philippines hinders relief efforts. (Thanks to reader J.B.G. for the link.)
