A HELPING HAND….Jon Stewart has “friends of the show,” and I have “friends of the blog.” One of them is Blue Girl, Red State, and BG’s computer is busted. Her other computer is busted too. So she needs a new one. I’ve already contributed to the new laptop fund, and if you can spare a few dollars for a worthy cause then head on over to her site pronto and hit the ‘ol PayPal account. It’ll get her back online, and that’s good karma. And we all need good karma, don’t we?
