Update on Heating Oil Story

I went online to find a phone number for the heating oil company in the NYT story so I could call them tomorrow, and I discovered a lot of people have already called.  The Sun Journal of Maine is reporting* that Hometown Energy in Dixfield, Maine got calls from all over the country on Saturday, pledging donations that totaled almost six figures in just one day.  They are setting up a trust fund for the Hartfords and others like them.

Our government may suck, but we are still good people.
