Save Our History

I received this note from a friend of mine. If you go to the comments page on the blog listed below there are two links for the petitions. Please Help.

Dear Fellow Comedy Fan,

There is an urgent movement afoot to save the historic Marx Brothers house from scheduled demolition. (Plus a baby companion movement, to rename the block it is on.) Please consider "signing" these two petitions, both of which will soon be sent to the very mayor of New York City himself.And thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

Hoping you will forgive my one-time dabbling in world affairs, Emo
