About a month ago Bill Wolfrum posted on his blog about his Scrabble-loving mom's need for a bone marrow transplant in California. I e-mailed him a note and offered to help him with some of his Microsoft Word/Adobe Acrobat issues so he could get his information flyer printed, and we've been in touch ever since—that is, when we aren't busy doing things like running websites (me) or organizing bone marrow drives (him).

We've only managed to speak on the phone once, but it was a long conversation in which we compared notes on our backgrounds and experiences. He's integrated some of that conversation into a posting on on Shakesville, with the stark but accurate headline "African-Americans are dying for bone marrow donors - a call to action." Check it out.
