“On Friday, June 15, my fellow Windbreakers co-founder Bobby Sutliff was involved in a bad single-vehicle accident near his home in Powell, Ohio. He sustained several serious injuries, and as of the 30th was still in the SICU at the Ohio State University hospital. Due to the severity of his wounds, Bobby faces a very long uphill climb to recovery. Fortunately, he has good health insurance through his employer, but faces many months of recuperation, and thus will require some very real help with his living expenses and other expenditures.Toward that end, we have undertaken a couple of fundraising measures, starting with a Chipin account where Bobby’s friends and fans can donate to the cause. A tribute record of other artists covering his songs is also in the works, and more information about that will be made available in the coming days. Whether you know Bobby personally or through his music, we request that you donate what you can to help a beloved musician and friend in his time of need.Also, please share this page with your friends. http://leelife.chipin.com/bobby-sutliff
Bobby needs all the assistance he can get. Thank you— Tim Lee"
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching. It unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. The money powers preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me & the financial institutions at the rear, the latter is my greatest foe. Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed." -Abraham Lincoln, (letter to William Elkins, Nov 21, 1864)
