Cliff Landis is a librarian in Valdosta, Georgia who, until last week, was planning on a post-holiday replenish of his savings account. However, upon hearing about the suffering the earthquake has wrought, he decided to further deplete his own savings in favor of contributing to PIH’s relief efforts in Haiti.

I am also a High Priest of the Faerie Faith, a Pagan religion. I began my training in Alder of 1999, and received my 5th Solar (3rd degree equivalent) on Winter Solstice of 2006.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I love him just the same.
