Don't know if this has been posted yet -- couldn't find anything in a search -- but valued longtime contributor to these pages, Douglas Spotted Eagle, was hurt in a skydiving accident last week.

Good Lord!!!
Spot really gave me a great deal in the early days of my entry into editing. This is horrible news.

May Wakan Tanka speed his recovery.

Doug,

If you get to read all this, we don't know each other but I've read many of your posts and learned from them. I wish you a speedy and complete recovery.

I admire your adventurous spirit.

Douglas,

I'll be praying for you tonight. I've enjoyed reading your posts, looking at your VASST training materials, and appreciated your great dedication to editing and videography.

Spot has posted a rather detailed update over at the Sony Creative Software forums -- bottom line is, despite how badly he was banged up, he's on the mend and it looks like he'll be okay...
