Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Your good wishes solicited

My stepson Gavin is a Search And Rescue Volunteer.

He is this morning on his way to Christchurch, where his team will be relieving another team which has been hard at it. Given the time that is passed, they are likely to be finding more bodies than survivors.

So, please, your good wishes, in whatever form you find appropriate, for him at what will be a really fraught time.

John Homes.

John: Best wishes to you, Gavin, and the rest of your family. I've had friends in the EMT/paramedical field doing search-and-rescue missions, and it was always, always very tough on them finding victims that didn't make it. It is a really tough job.
