Logger Fred

Andy and Jen talk about body hair and hygiene at Logger Fred's benefit potluck at Crossroads Bar & Grill tonight.

Logger Fred recently had a logging accident and needs our help. The details escape me, but a tree rolled on, and crushed, his leg when he was working alone one day. With his bone in two pieces, he took his chain saw and cut himself free. When his screams went unheard, he was able to get himself to find help.

Logger Fred is uninsured. He spent four day in the hospital and has metal rods in his leg. Logger Fred is in a bad position. Hundreds of people came out tonight to support him. Hopefully the money raised will make things a little easier for awhile.

John Edwards and his universal health care plan is sounding even more appealing about now.
