Do Something Good Today!


This is kind of a no-brainer that will not only instantly make you feel like a better person (not that you aren’t super-terrific and a box of chocolates already, of course), but could, quite literally give someone the gift of life. All you have to do is click on the above graphic and go register with the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network (Canadians only, but the USA likely has something similar).

As if those two things (“better person” + “gift of life”) weren’t amazingly compelling incentives right there, know also that you’ll be contributing in a very positive and lasting way to the legacy of a very gracious and decent fellow.

So what are you waiting for?

It costs nothing and could hold the key to someone’s future. Not much of a downside there! Oh, and don’t be giving me any lame excuses about how bad and seedy you are, from a medical point of view…

Here’s a news flash: polls go up and down slightly from month to month, but the relative splits in party support don’t crucially part ways in any significant fashion until election time (when the crucial 5-8% of uncommitted “swing voters” suddenly decides which way the wind is blowing).


Can we all go back to sleep now and forget about these stupid, fact-challenged metrics of “popular opinion” in between elections that are meaningless to all but the polling outfits that conduct them, the newspapers that commission them and some fixated partisans that enjoy sifting through their largely meaningless entrails for whatever reasons?
