The Spirit of Giving

First things first...

We're down to the last two days (well... last one if you're reading this tomorrow) of the Spirit of America Friends of Iraq Blogger Challenge. I am happy to report that the Northern Alliance team is doing well. But I am unhappy to report that our numbers are not keeping pace with earlier projections. Hopes to provide a new Ford Explorer for every Iraqi family have turned sharply in the used AMC Concord direction. Is that the impression we want to leave the Iraqi people?!

What are you folks spending money on, rather than donating to Spirit of America?! It's like there is some other money-sucking event just around the corner causing people to turn their cash toward purposes other than this contest.

People, in case you haven't noticed your neighbors think this contest is so important they're decorating their houses with lights capturing the colors or the Iraqi flag! Pardon their confusion if they toss in an extra color or two - vexillology has never been a particular strength for America's education system - just admire their enthusiasm!

But before you run down to the Home Depot for your own strands of Sprit of America Iraqi Freedom lights, why not toss a few of those dollars in the jar here instead? It will save you the hassle of messing with electrical devices on ladders in sub-freezing temps, AND assist a good cause. It's even tax deductable (unlike some other holiday donations).

Click the flag below, and get into the spirit of the season.

Yoinks!
Are these really the right-wing rantings of my best old ex friend Ray...er... Doug!? (Sorry, had some Croce on the brain when I was reading your blogs, or should I refer to them as 'posts'?) And now you're an avid blogger!? Truly unanticipated! Was there a series of headblows that lead to this transformation or was it a sudden Archimides-esque moment? Give me buzz or drop me a line... I have once again misplaced your e-mail address. If you don't, Elwood and I will come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week. (Okay, so I had some Belushi on the brain,too.)

Oy! So you've come to this. Trolling blog comments.

And you were the one voted "Most likely to own his own comic book store" in our D & D group oh so many years ago. Sad how these things turn out sometimes.
