  1. Uregently Needed: A Song of Hope for Ray Sanford

    Ray Sandford is a 54 year old resident of Minnesota who lives in a small apartment of his own. Ray happens to be diagnosed w/ bipolar disorder. For the past year and a half, police officers arrive at Ray's home on Wednesday mornings and escort him to a nearby psychiatric hospital where his brain is electrocuted against his will. This causes Ray to lose his memories of friends and family, amongst other things. He was last shocked on Christmas eve, despite a court injunction attempting to stop this from happening. Ray is not a criminal, just a regular guy who has had some emotional problems on and off through his life. There is a massive campaign happening on Ray's behalf, and any and all help is appreciated. http://www.mindfreedom.org/shield/ray/sandford-faq I simply wanted to post here to ask if anyone has any ideas for a song of hope for Ray during the holiday season? I can think of few people who need it more.

Check out this thread. I saw that, it inspired me to post here. My friend's name from college is Peter Mueller, but he may spell it with an umlaut.

    I actually went to the same college as Regina for a few years, and one of my buddies was good friends with her at the time. One day we were driving around, and he put her cd on. It was really beautiful, but I don’t know which one it was, this was 6 or 7 years ago… I only ever met her one time and she seemed really nice. She came over to my friend's place in the “Olde,” and I think we watched Apocalypse Now but I could be wrong. If you’re a Purchase cat you exactly know what I mean (if not, the "Olde" is just the name of the student apartments on campus.) I hadn’t heard any of her music since that time in my friend’s car. Then a few days ago, I saw her video Fidelity on TV for the first time. It was amazing. I was so happy for her! You know what they say about a friend of a friend, right? I just bought her new album off of amazon, and I’m impatiently awaiting its arrival. By the way, after reading about Elena and Frank’s chance encounter in Chicago, and their unlikely reuniting here, I figured anything was possible. My buddy used to run Regina’s website way back when, maybe he’s still around? He often had to remind me that there is no such country as Hungaria. Peace
