“….My good friend, and huge supporter from day 1, Sheldon Gunby, has run into some very bad luck lately. He has been facing many chronic medical issues over the past few years, including the removal of his colon and 3 reconstructions of his spine.
In a vicious cycle that happens all too often, he cannot work due to his illness, and therefore cannot afford health insurance, or even some necessities like rent, medicine and internet access. Also we are reminded that prescription drugs are not the large cost in healthcare–none of Sheldon’s large costs relate to drugs, but hospital stays and procedures. Those prices have inflated as fast, and in some cases, faster than prescription drugs. We need some solutions for healthcare, not indiscriminate and thoughtless blame.
Join me in giving some holiday spirit to the Gunbys in their time of need by donating here: paypal.me/coatneigh. Any donation over $100 will get a special gift from me and any favor you wish (within reason).

There is some deep irony in their/his Christmas appeal — with “special gifts” from Marty, for anyone giving more than $100 — and the gratuitous suggestion that drug prices aren’t an important part of the problem.
So I will leave it right there, without any actual links. If you wish to donate — or comment — you may find it by going to Marty’s Facebook page.
That’s all I’ve got.
