Last Minute Fundraising Push

Remember James, the nephew of blogmistress extraordinaire Kathy the Cakeeater? He's the young man with juvenile diabetes who is competing for a chance to fly to North Carolina & mingle with professional Funny Car drivers courtesy of Ford (the only "true" American carmaker left, now that we've got "Government Motors") and JDRF.

Tomorrow's the last day for this fundraiser, and James has a good chance of winning the trip. What he needs is some interested group of morons who would be willing to go over and give his donation jar one last hit to push him over the top.

Remember, people: James is a VERY young man, so please don't expect any grateful odes to the pleasures of Val-U-Rite Discount Vodka if he wins this contest; HOWEVER, I have it from a very well-placed source that he is willing to launch into a long, profanity-laced tirade about being "the only important person in this pit area" when he makes the trip to North Carolina.

All political considerations aside, this is a good cause. I've never met James, but given the fact that his aunt Kathy just grabbed cancer by the nose and kicked it in the balls, repeatedly; I think that its extremely likely that he's got a bit of spirit. Good luck, James.
