Friends of Iraq Update
Mrs. Chester is at work tonight and I've got a long night of blogging planned. There is no way I'll get to everything I'd like to, so I'm making no promises . . . but there is much to cover. I'd like to thank Alert Reader "Chris" who made a $500 donation to the Friends of Iraq Blogger Challenge yesterday. His commitment is truly inspiring, but he tells Chester it is nothing compared to the sacrifices of our troops. Thanks, Chris. Anyone who'd like to can contribute here. Also, another Alert Reader actually works for Spirit of America and tells Chester via email: "Thanks for all the mentions on your site. While we welcome donations, you should tell them that anyone is welcome to attend the events." Here's more:
The theme of the events is "Grass roots America, Grass roots Iraq - the Untold Story." We can promise you'll gain a rare, ground-level "real world" perspective on Iraq. Food and beverages will be served There are events in New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. If you'd like more information, please visit the Spirit of America website.I've asked permission from the Spirit of America folks to publish their email addresses so interested readers can correspond directly with them and get the correct info on the California events. If any Alert Readers go to these events, we'd really like a report, whether by post, or emailed to Chester (see sidebar for email address)!
