Dean and his family need your help. Dean has been more than generous with his time; he has helped many a blogger move off of Blogspot and without Dean, Operation Give would not be the success that it is. So give a little back. The blogosphere, as I very well know, is made up of very generous people. Whether you like Dean's blog or not, think about giving the Esmays what you can. Empathy and thoughtfulness do not know of politics.
