HELPING HAND….Art Silber is a fellow Southern California blogger, and thanks to the Los Angeles transit strike he can no longer get to work. After several weeks of this he’s about to go broke, so he needs a few bucks to pay some bills and get his car running so he can get back to work.

Lord knows his politics don’t line up with mine, but who cares? He needs a hand, and he is a fellow cat lover. So if you have a few dollars you can spare, hit his tip jar and help out.

Even better, if you live in LA and happen to have a spare car you could loan him until the strike gets settled, send him an email and let him know.
