MrSEC’s Mitchell Alive And Well

In the midst of all the chaos and loss of life in Christchurch, New Zealand, it seems out of place to talk about “good news.”  But on the front, we received some fantastic news this morning.

Mike Mitchell — co-owner of as well as our weekend update man — has survived yesterday’s massive, deadly earthquake.

Responding to an email of “Are you okay?” Mitchell wrote back after 3am ET:

“Yes — crazy day — we were right in the middle of it.  Running out of battery — but we’re good.  Now about two hours outside of Christchurch.”

That’s quite a relief for those of us who work with Mike — and more importantly — are best friends with Mike.  And there are many out there who think of him in that way.

We were a bit more worried last evening than we’d even let on in our initial post.  What we did not pass along at the time was the fact that I personally had received an email from Mike about three hours before the quake hit saying that he was going into the heart of Christchurch to do some sightseeing.  So when news came of the quake, of bodies strewn across city streets, and of people being trapped in the rubble of the city’s most-popular tourist attractions… I feared the worst.

But thankfully, all is well and our partner here at MrSEC is safe and sound.  Now, if only we can talk our recruiting writer Josh Ward out of making his own trip to New Zealand and Australia later this spring.

Josh, ever thought about Dollywood?  I can’t remember any natural disasters there.

Many thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers,
John and the gang at
