Words simply cannot express how horribly sad today's news was. The thoughts and prayers of all of us are with James, Kati, and their family tonight.
Sheriff Brian Anderson deserves a ton of credit. I've never seen someone more dedicated to finding someone he never knew personally. I hope to God nothing like that ever happens to me... but if it does, I want Brian leading the team to find me.
The family finally set up a place to take donations on their website, so my efforts are no longer necessary. I'll be redirecting my donation link to their site shortly. There were three donations, and those donations will be immediately transferred to the PayPal account the Kim family set up.
Since the family's doing it now, you no longer have an excuse not to donate. Please be generous. He helped save the lives of his wife and kids, and he's a hero for it. I can't really think of a worse way for a Thanksgiving celebration to end. Rest in Peace, James Kim.
Update: Scott Fulton of BetaNews said it far better that I could.
