Concert to Save Charity

from Humidcity dot com

September 19th, 2009 is a significant day and not just because there’s an amazing musical line-up. It is the fourth anniversary of the shuttering of Charity Hospital without the legislative approval required by law. The decision to close Charity Hospital at that time remains a huge setback for our city.

Contrary to the claims of state officials, Charity Hospital was not destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. In fact, teams of doctors, nurses, and military personnel from the U.S.S. Iwo Jima worked around the clock to scrub the hospital clean so that it was ready to receive patients on the day it was shut down. Click here to see what the hospital looked like the day it was closed down.

Help stop this injustice. If you can't attend the concert, then spread the word that Charity Hospital is ready for business .

Just curious. Did the "constantly hateful" comments about George Bush, or perhaps Sarah Palin, bother you as well? Most of the opposition to Obama is ideologically based, for some very good reasons, but it is far easier for the president's supporters to explain it all away as mere racism. That is sophistry, of course.

MAD, sorry I upset you. Your comment appears to be in the wrong post, but I know what you're talking about.

The hateful comments about Bush and Palin were well founded, not racist, IMHO. Bush is a buffoon who brought this country down. Palin is just a loudmouth wacko.

Just my opinion, you see. There's a difference between political satire and downright hateful, racist comments.
