James Goodin passed this along:

I have lived in the Joplin, MO area all of my life. Fortunately my family and myself made it through last weekend’s devastation safely, however, many others weren’t nearly as lucky.

Yesterday I was reading on Twitter and saw a post from Shawn Michaels saying he was on his way to Joplin with supplies to help those displaced by this terrible tragedy. So I wanted to nominate him for a “Gold Star” on Mr. V’s column. This is certainly something Shawn did not have to do and we are all thankful for any help.

While my family and I had no harm, I have many, many friends that lost their homes and family members. This is a link Shawn Michaels posted on Twitter of him with some of the volunteer workers http://yfrog.com/gziqxirpj. Thank you for taking the time to read this and keep up the excellent work on the website.
