Red Cross faces critical blood shortage

The Red Cross is facing a critical shortage of donated blood. Normal they ask that I donate platlets and plasma because of my rare blood type (AB+, only 3% percent of the population has it), but they called me and asked for a whole blood donation. I would have donated, but I am taking an antibiotic for my infected finger.

I'm asking my fellow political bloggers to give blood if they are able. All of us clamor for health care reform, I push for less government involvement while other push for more. But a blood shortage cannot be solved with legislation. Anybody regardless of ideology can make a positive difference today by rolling up their sleeve.
