Plus, I have only been able to be in touch with family members and friends as David & I have been on 3 legs of a flight to get to Oklahoma City to get to nearby Norman for a nephew's graduation. Mary was hit by a car this morning, with John thankfully in town and nearby. Because her head was cracked in some way and her pelvis was whacked, it sounded pretty scary for awhile. From what I know from very recently, while she has had a lot of pain, so far, all looks OK and all should be OK. These are not official words, but that's as current as I know.
I will try to keep sending word, or find a way that you get word, and when we can all do something to help, I and our other Mary Followers will round up ways to truly help.
Victor Pinchuk Kiev, Ukraine Investment Advisory group (EastOne Group) Contemporary art

The pairings now seem surreal. Pinchuk riffed on the "The World of Tomorrow" with Tony Blair and Bill Clinton. (Pinchuk's munificence is no small factor in the A-list turnout: He gave $1 million in both 2012 and 2013 to the Clinton Foundation.) Larry Summers, David Petraeus and the head of Interpol talked about the "Shocks Ahead." And Hillary Clinton stole the show during dinner under a huge tent next to the palace, giving a pep talk about how Ukraine has got everything going for it: resources, an educated population and, especially, chocolate. While it would all, within months, flip upside down, it appeared this Western-oriented goodwill had taken hold.
It's not Russia that's pushed Ukraine to the brink of war
The attempt to lever Kiev into the western camp by ousting an elected leader made conflict certain. It could be a threat to us all
The threat of war in Ukraine is growing. As the unelected government in Kiev declares itself unable to control the rebellion in the country's east, John Kerry brands Russia a rogue state. The US and the European Union step up sanctions against the Kremlin, accusing it of destabilising Ukraine. The White House is reported to be set on a new cold war policy with the aim of turning Russia into a "pariah state". That might be more explicable if what is going on in eastern Ukraine now were not the mirror image of what took place in Kiev a couple of months ago. Then, it was armed protesters in Maidan Square seizing government buildings and demanding a change of government and constitution. US and European leaders championed the "masked militants" and denounced the elected government for its crackdown, just as they now back the unelected government's use of force against rebels occupying police stations and town halls in cities such as Slavyansk and Donetsk.
Vice President Joe Biden's son joins Ukraine gas company
Burisma, a private oil and gas company in Ukraine, announced this week that it has appointed Hunter Biden, the youngest son of US Vice President Joe Biden, to its board of directors. The company, founded in 2002, is controlled by a former energy official in the government of deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. The move has raised some eyebrows in the US, given the Obama administration's attempts to manage the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. "Joe Biden has been the White House's go-to guy during the Ukraine crisis, touring former Soviet republics and reassuring their concerned leaders," writes the National Journal's Marina Koren. "And now, he's not the only Biden involved in the region."
