Chris DeLine and Culture Bully is taking on an enormous task for a good cause. They will be blogging 60 hours straight, over the next three days, in an effort to raise money for music programs and education efforts in the Twin Cities. I know it’s tough to give in this economic environment, but please do consider visiting Culture Bully and support them with kind words and maybe even a little $$$.
