    Hey guys.

    My ex-coworker is looking for ways to raise money to support his severely disabled little boy. I did tweet it and post on FB. Do you know any other place I can post it to? Actually the story is pretty crazy. The boy was born too early after only spending like 4 or 5 months in the mother. He was very tiny so it is a miracle that he survived at all... and then a few years later the mom died of diabetes! So now the father is having issues paying the round the clock nursing staff! So if anybody would like to retweet, etc. please do so.

    You could make a charity where you hold big parties, act like a wild screaming baboon at the U.S. Open and pretend to run a marathon...

    Can you put him in a kitten costume? Could get him a stint rent-free in Beth's Primary ResidenceThe Hamptons.
