Damn shame.
Tom's one of our heroes. We need to help if we can.

I talked to Tom this morning and told him lots of folks are wishing him well and wondering what we can do. Once a fundraising point is set up, one of us will post it here.

Wow, hard to believe Tom has not been on Ford Barn for over a year. Best of luck to him.

I will support this, but why no insurance?

Sorry, it's just the ex-insurance agent in me. Did not intend to insult anybody!

Ya know… it’s not for us to judge. If you would like to help the gentleman then do. If not please don’t cast stones. Life is hard. Choices are made. Just my thoughts…

If we are asking people to open up their checkbooks you damn well better judge whether this is actually a good idea or not.

For the sake of argument what if you were to find out the reason Tom doesn't have insurance is because he self insured. Turns out, he owns numerous properties, a Gulfstream, and has a net worth of 20 million dollars. His annual interest income stream alone is greater than your net worth. How charitable are you feeling now?

Yeah yeah, I know that probably isn't the case here, but, I don't know that. Be careful out there folks. Just sayin'.
