It's simple: I want us to band together to send Robert James Sutherland, one of the nicest guys I know, aloft in a WWII bomber, as per his bucket list.

You and I gather on the "Robert James Sutherland Get Well!" page to witness his struggles and continual triumphs against cancer. "Heroic" is the word. And we all know what it's cost him. In energy, in sleepless nights, in personal pain.

Recently we all read that one wish he has on his bucket list is to fly in a B-29. And Andrew Hill pointed out that "Fifi" will be barnstorming in Everett in June, five weeks from now.

So here's the deal: I want us to chip in to make this happen. There are 140 of us. The cockpit flight is $1045.

Here's the powerful thing: There are 146 people on the "Get Well!" page. So I'm hoping each of you is willing to chip in at least twenty bucks.

With everything in, the trip is likely to cost $2000 (vehicle, fuel, hotel one night, meals, taxes, fees), so I'm setting that as a goal. Anything left over goes straight to Bob to help cover his own expenses here at home.

Twenty. Dollars. That's all. You probably have that much hidden in your couch cushions. But feel free to put in more. It's all going to Bob.

Twenty bucks to fulfill Bob's dream.
Is that too much to ask?
