Registered members of Red X will have already received information about this in an email but I thought I'd post it here as well.

Efforts in San Diego to do reconstruction after the earthquake have been on-going but things are going too slowly. So the Red Cross has sent out a call to its members asking for a donation of time and hard-work. Because Xavier's Spring Break is next week and we have such a stronghold of Red X members here, they'd asked us to come and help out.

I won't lie to you, it's going to be a lot of hard work. It's a chance to help people though and I think we can all get behind that.

Talk to any of the Red X members here for information on how to get involved.

Specifically you younger folks - this "news" is a program on the television that lets people know what's going on in the world. Some of us old farts actually read it in a print form called a "newspaper", but that's because we're apparently old and behind the times.

But for those of you who were paying attention this morning, you might have noticed a lot of talk about what happened in San Diego last month. While there's still a lot of blood drives and relief stuff going on - and believe me, it is, even if the news isn't covering it - what you're going to see in the next few days is going to probably have a lot of people talking.

This morning, Magneto made a statement taking responsibility for the earthquake. For those of you who weren't there, that's the truth. And just like that mess at Liberty Island a few years back, this is going to get people all heated up about mutants. Only probably more so.

Some of you might hear people talking when you leave here. Some of you who're more open about what you are might get some harsh reactions from people. All I can say is this: don't be stupid.

No, I can probably say a bit more than that. You all know that I'm technically old enough to eat off the seniors' menu at Denny's, and while that's kind of a joke to folks, this is where it comes in a little handy. See, when I was younger than most of you, we had this thing going on called World War II. And I was only a toddler when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, but I grew up seeing how they got treated afterwards - because people were stupid. Something like that, it took years to get fixed. I'd like to think people are smarter now, but there's always going to be that loud bunch that ain't.

Don't be part of that loud bunch, from either end. People might try and tell you what happened in San Diego is something you're responsible for, or you ought to pay for. You're not, and it ain't.

But it might be wise the next few days to take things a little more cautious. Because there's people out there who'll probably be itching for a fight. And trust me, you don't need to give it to them.

... David Haller was one of the team members onsite for the tsunami in San Diego last weekend. What you don't know is that he was instrumental in helping stop it. While he's recovering, like the others who were involved, there have been some complications. I won't go into details, other than to say that the strain was very hard on him.

He's going to need some time and quiet to recover, so you may not see him around for a little while. The Professor and Moira will be doing what they can for him.

As a result of this afternoon's events in San Diego, RedX has asked for all available volunteers for the relief efforts. Those of you without prior experience who wish to offer your assistance may; you will be paired with those who have worked with RedX before, or given tasks that do not require specialized training.

Another C-130 is leaving from Suffolk Field in three hours. Transportation will be provided to the airfield. Alternatively, you may also wait a few more hours and return to San Diego on the Blackbird, which is currently en route back to the mansion carrying injured team members.

I regret to say that I do not yet have specific information on the condition of the injured. Doctors Voght and MacTaggart have made the necessary preparations in the infirmary. We will let you know as soon as possible.
