Today In Laguna Woods

I was able to make it down to Laguna Woods today for KFI's Hurricane Katrina fundraiser. It was great to see ordinary citizens opening up their hearts and their checkbooks to help out all the victims in the disaster. I even got a chance to meet Bill Handel, KFI's morning drive host. John & Ken raised over $250k during their four hour show and the it is still going until 10pm tonight. Jim Gilchrist made another appearance there as well. People are genuinely excited about his campaign. He is like a rock star. Every time John & Ken said his name the crowd in the ballroom went crazy. Jim Gilchrist wants all Americans to pitch in and help the relief effort. He compared it to the Minutemen, which I think was a good analogy. The Minutemen are just your average citizens doing their patriotic duty. All and all it was another home run for the Gilchrist campaign.
I also want to mention Jim's website. It is by far the best one out there of all the candidates running. I'll leave everyone with a picture of Jim's appearance at the Ayres Hotel in Laguna Woods
