Thus Spake Zuska

Rachael Maddow Heard It Here First…

JustaTech commented last night:

Zuska, I saw this story [about the carwash for the shooting victim] on MSNBC last night (9/1) (The Rachel Maddow Show). So at least the liberal-leaning national media has also noticed.

I suppose this falls under tootin’ my own horn, but one of Rachael Maddow’s producer’s contacted me by email in response to my original post on this story. They wanted help in getting in touch with the young woman, which I could not do, but I did provide them with the link to the story done by local news outlet WPXI – which is excerpted in the segment on the 9/1 Maddow show.

So I want to thank you, my dear Zuskateers, for bringing YOUR attention to my blog post, and thus helping this story get told more widely in the mainstream media.

I’m disappointed that I have not been able to find a way to set up online donations, but maybe Maddow’s story will help bring something into being.

    You should talk to Mike Haubrich (Tangled up in Blue Guy) about online donations. He’s done that before for various purposes and knows everything.

    I looove Rachel Maddow. I don’t have cable right now, but when I do I make a point to watch her show every night. And then I promptly turn it off afterwards because I have a strong dislike for MSNBC, as well as Keith Olbermann who is on after her show (and before, for some reason).
