As some of you may know, I have been a supporter of John Edwards, and of  his vision of the United States as the world leader in ending poverty worldwide.
Whether or not you were a fan of Edwards, I ask on behalf of someone who can benefit from your help. That person is Keith Sullivan, who was the homeless veteran who called the Ed Schultz show, after Ed was on O'Reilly and O'Reilly disputed Edward's claim of 200,000 homeless vets. Keith has served his country honorably, and who also fell on hard times after losing his wife and son in a car accident.
The Edwards campaign asked me to help out in any way I could, yet they also asked me not to make that appeal part of my radio show, because they did not want to politicize the issue. Now that his campaign is over, there is no danger of politicizing this issue, and I appeal to you in the blogosphere to help Keith.
Keith has found work, however, he still needs a little help to get on his feet.
If you have a few dollars to donate in the form of a gift certificate, that would be much appreciated.

please email me if you have any concerns about this donation. As I am unsure of how to set up an actblue account for a short term situation like this, this is the best way. Also, please email me if you are sending a gift certificate so that we can verify with Keith.

Keith's address is:

Keith Sullivan
15216 CR 240
Bayfield, CO 81122

By the way, not to diminish, my guest on this show is Betsy Markey, who will make a fine replacement to DOMA defender, Marilyn Musgrave CO CD-4, you can visit her site at
The rest of her interview will be published shortly.

I also want to personally congratulate the Obama campaign in carrying forth the change we need in Washington.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
