You don't mention Pink Floyd. They were on earlier and were phenomenal as is Billy Joel, who is on at this moment. Saw him many years ago at Madison Square Garden and he is still the best. It is a great thing they are all doing tonight.

How much money was raised at the Sandy Concert? and will you keep the Gov't/Obama/s hands from taking any! any!, of these funds. Thank you, Mike

Has the amount raised at the Sandy Concert been posted anyplace? Throughout the entire night, they kept repeating over and over that every penny collected would go to helping the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. They said the costs associated with the concert would be covered by the Board of Directors and by the several sponsors of the concert (G.E., Chase, and a few others). They said that Robin Hood Fund gives every penny to the cause. I hope that is true.

Dull dull dull. So where will these millions go to and how much will the goverment skim. How will it be spread out, what will the requirement to get me some of it. I had a tree come down, why should I pay for this if no one else is paying for their own homes and investments.
