We here in Baltimore and in Maryland generally were affected by Hurricane Sandy, but we avoided the brunt of the storm that caused major damage to our neighbors to the North and East.  The storm impacted millions in New Jersey, New York and other states.

NBC will be airing a concert  Friday night at 8 p.m. featuring Sting, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and others, to raise funds for the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy recovery and relief efforts.  The Red Cross has many opportunities to help those affected by the storm.  With this line up this concert and telethon should be a good one, for a good cause.
