I'm horrified by this. Just horrified. And yeah, really, really angry. And worried for the Rev. And just sick at heart at how much this is going to cost--as another medically uninsured person? It's going to be staggering.

Please tell me there's a fundraiser for Phil in the works. I think it's the least this community can do, for the man who's given us all so much.

I recognize that hospital room from Emanuel's TRACU. Bummer to find my ol' horseshoe throwing pal in its bed with a busted leg. Looks like he's got a nice Morphine machine going - push that button Phil! And dammit - wear a helmet!

We passed the helmet tonight for Rev Phil to help with immediate expenses. Folks were very generous. When the time comes we should seriously discuss a fundraising event that will make lots of $ and be loads of fun.
