Blogger Juliette “Baldilocks” Ochieng has a bit of a reason for following this story — her father, too, was from Kenya. The same tribe as Obama’s, in fact. And she has decided that it’s her responsibility to honor her “cousin’s” pledge, since he can’t be bothered.
I’m in a serious financial jam at the moment, but I think I can scrape together a few bucks to help out the Senator Obama Kogelo Secondary School. I’ll be sending off some money via PayPal as soon as I can.
