12. Better yet, why don't we try and get this resolved?
Edited on Fri Apr-20-07 02:47 PM by KamaAina
I bear no animus towards JE. Neither does Dambala (the blogger), as he states explicitly in the comments. Again, we just don't want to see these businesses -- and their employees, who are of course still rebuilding -- get hurt.

Now, this being GD-P, might there be someone out there with ties to the Edwards campaign? Someone who could drop a hint in the right place and help get this done? And if this turned out to be a way that John could reconnect with New Orleans, that wouldn't be a bad thing, either!
