My daughter Rachel, who is one of the most compassionate teens I know, is putting together a benefit concert for the Haitian earthquake victims. The proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.
Seems like almost every day, my email inbox is flooded with requests for donations. Some of these are simply SPAM, of course, but quite a few a from RNC and The League of American Voters and Grassfire Nation. I used to give a little to each one, but it was getting out of control. I firmly support commonsense conservative candidates, but when do you say - "Enough is enough - I've done all I can?"
In another politically related topic, how about that Scott Brown, huh?
Do you think that the independent-thinking voters in the bluest of blue states sending a member of the GOP to Washington will send a loud enough message?
(to sum it all up in a quick phrase)
"QUIT SPENDING SO DANG MUCH MONEY!"
And, last but certainly not least,
I have to tell you that I am so looking forward to Feb 9th, at 5:56 pm.
Ya wanna know where I'll be?
At the airport.
Ya wanna know why?
My son is coming home from his mission!
