Project: Bring Miracle

The Joseph family lost their Lower 9th Ward home for the second time. Kellie Joseph and her 6 children lost their home to Katrina. The rebuilding of their home was nearly complete when it was tragically destroyed by a fire after someone abandoned a stolen car in their backyard and lit it aflame to destroy evidence. The flames engulfed the home.

We in the left side of the blogosphere can help out. But that doesn't mean that people on the right can't donate too. Heck I'll bet that even the talk radio hosts on the right would be impressed by the pluck of these people who rebuilt their home once and are trying to rebuild it again.

What do you think? Nah...

On the anniversary of 1,577 dead in Louisiana and tens of thousands displaced, Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan said this about New Orleans and the Saints' fans:
Rodgers: "I don’t wanna hear anymore of this crap from people in Louisiana saying.'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme.' Shut the hell up. Solve your own problems. It’s been two years, grow up." (audio link WMA) (audio link MP3) (Windows Media Audio files. Mac users try Flip4Mac download plug in here)

BTW, don't bother to write Rodgers about his comments about the people in Louisiana. He stands by his comments, he doesn't care what you think, you aren't going to change his mind he's said so. Just send money to the Joseph family.

UPDATE: Scout just informed me that Project Bring Miracle has raised about $3,000 dollars from us bloggers. I like to hear news like that. And if are tapped out and and can't give I understand, if you have a blog tell this story on your blog. You might reach someone who can.
