The Duches of Earle just found this posting about the Nov. 22nd, 2008, Sleep Out with Bob Fisher and Corey Koskie on the Wayzata, Minnesota, website. Apparently there are sleep outs that go on all over the community for over a month. After all, the goal is $2 million. More power to ’em! says the Duchess.
