I'd like to quote something from what I am realizing was one of my most overly hasty posts of the decade:

In the days after September 11, Amazon, eBay, and Yahoo collected millions upon millions from the American public at an amazing speedy rate. Why aren't we doing that now? Because we weren't attacked? BECAUSE IT'S NOT US?

And then point you with a vague sense of mixed pride and embarrassment to here.

$8,404,889.
