Post-worthy?  Apparently I think so. I just caught this partial quote from American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox (who's in the Top 2 now - I wrote about her here), on why people should vote for her:



{excerpted from USAToday's Idol Chatter Blog}


"I need lots of money to give to charities and to start my foundation for juvenile diabetes. It's not for research. It's for taking care of issues now. ...

My goal is to set up something where there can be screening clinics where once you have the diagnosis, they can treat the problem and pharmaceutical companies can donate medicine and supplies. That's my goal ... People should never go without insulin. In my life at points, I've begged for insulin outside of pharmacies and no one should ever have to do that."



What can I say? I like her. And there's nothing like having lived the need to light the fire under you to help others.
