You can still make a donation for tsunami relief AND write it off of your taxes for LAST year.
A bill passed by Congress yesterday will let you take a deduction on your 2004 returns even if you haven't made the donation yet.

As great as the need may be overseas, however, generally only U-S-based charities qualify for tax write-offs. And you have to itemize your deductions to take advantage of the bill.

American Airline's parent company lost ground after matching Delta's fare cuts in major markets.
Bankrupt US Airways was given a short term lifeline .. flight attendants at US airways and pilots at bankrupt United both agreed to pay cuts to keep the airlines flying.. and a bankruptcy judge threw out a labor contract between us airways and its machinists union.. saving the airline millions..
But that may not be enough to save the airline. Discount carrier Southwest said it will begin flying into pittsburg - US Airways former hub - in the Spring. Analysts say that could speed up the demise of US Airways.
Mortgage rates fell during the past week, as economic news reflected stable growth and low inflation. According to Freddie Mac the average for 30-year
