please chip in to have ypsi youth deported

Our friend Sam Abuelsamid is trying to rally support for a good, local cause. If you get a chance, check out his post. Here’s how it begins:

The Ypsilanti High School drama club has been invited to participate in the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland next summer. This is a huge honor being only the third ever school from Michigan invited to participate in the festival. There’s just one problem. In order to send the cast and crew to Edinburgh for 2 weeks and put on four performances they need to raise $100,000. That means they need a lot of help…

And, if you don’t have money, I’m sure that any fundraising ideas would be appreciated. This would be an incredible opportunity for these kids and it would be a shame if they weren’t able to take advantage of it.

Or, if you can’t find it in your heart to help deport our local youth, at least consider sending a few bucks to Robert Anton Wilson.

    Say no more.

    All I have to hear is “Susan Anton’s in trouble” and I’m reaching for my wallet. How much does she need?

    I’m not suggesting that they do this, but I’m told that used schoolgirl panties sell quite well in Japan.

    I think someone should just give them a paperback copy of Kon-Tiki and a few palm fronds.

    I imagine that a raft made of soiled panties would be worth a fortune.

    And you raise an interesting point, Ol’ E.C. Hopefully, Sam, or someone else with knowledge of the situation, responds. As you point out, however, it sounds like a great experience regardless of how they came by it, and I wish them all the luck in securing the funds necessary.
