Barbara O’Brien, aka Mahabarbara, is the first blogger that I ever knew and one of the sharper commentators out there. If you have any change lying around consider passing it on to help keep medical bills from driving her out of her house.

Tim, thoughtful of you to post on this.
I’m trying to send a donation but when I click the "Donate" button and log in to my Paypal acct. I uh, I don’t know how to complete the donation to Mahablog. Nothing shows up indicating Mahablog or Barbara.
Need some tutoring if you can, please.

I have never heard of the lady, but I put some money in the bucket and pray it all works out for her. This sort of situation happens to far too many people in the USA, and it shouldn’t have to happen at all.

I like these sorts of posts.
@Laura W: Sometimes it’s hard to remember, as we sit here and watching and rebutting the frothing extremists, that overall Americans are very friendly and very giving.
She is one of the first blogs I read and her blog was responsible for the majority of my education of the political world. She motivated me to learn more and get involved in the Kerry campaign, my first of many. Please read her and help out, too, if you can!
