Help A Child Get An Education

I hate to piggy-back personal interest on a boost in traffic caused by the death of Margaret Hassan, but while you guys are here it would be great if a few of you could contribute to our little charity. My brother, Scott, will be running the Lochaber marathon next April to raise money for the school he worked for in India.

Scott came home from India with malaria and gastroenteritis, and has spent the last 10 days in hospital with a suspected case of amoebic dysentery (which the doctors had been treating with medication for typhoid, for some reason). Since Scott went through weeks of crippling illness for the school, it shouldn't be too much to ask for some of you good people to reach into you pockets.

Go on. It might give you a bargaining chip when you get to the Pearly Gates and have to explain that weekend in Vegas. I don't care if it's legal on the Strip - you know what I'm talking about.
