Jamie McMurray Goes Home To Joplin

((HT: ESPN))

The HQ knows what the folks in Joplin, MIssouri are going through... not from actual experience, but by having covered the similar events in Ringgold, Georgia...

NASCAR drive Jamie McMurray lives in North Carolina, but was raised in Joplin...
Marty Smith went home with him to see what's left...


The HQ recommends helping Tuscaloosa, Ringgold, or Joplin...
Hell, here's an idea...
How 'bout all of them...

Jamie commented on the Speed Channel interview that he was able to obtain the bricks from his childhood home in Joplin and would re-purpose those bricks for his home in NC. I'd be interested in purchasing a brick, incorporating it in my home, and the proceeds could be donated to rebuilding Joplin. I think that $50 or $100 for each brick could go a long way for some underinsured home project for residents in Joplin.
This is not to say that Jamie's Idea is a bad one, just an opportunity for the folks at Earnhardt/Ganassi to make the most of the situation.

and the four-letter network...

That's why we recommend places like all the Facebook pages that have sprung up in Joplin, Tuscaloosa, and Ringgold to get your information for choices that directly affect those who are hurting right now...
