Screech, whom I have always considered the star of "Saved by the Bell" (I've said it before, I'll say it again: Zach was gay and Slater was his lover. All you need to see is the bootleg, never aired episode from the last season titled "I Wish I Could Quit You" where they both come out of the closet and annouce their relationship. It was found to be too edgy at the time (1993). Man, how have times changed) is apparently in dire straights and is selling t-shirts to pay for his home, currently in foreclosure. In a situation that must surely share the same riches to rags stories as MC Hammer and anyone who has been on "The Surreal Life," Screech hopes to raise $250,000.

From Foxnews.com:

MILWAUKEE — More than a bell is needed to save Dustin Diamond this time around. Diamond, best known as geeky Screech Powers on the 1989-1993 teen comedy series "Saved by the Bell," is selling T-shirts with his photo on them to try to raise $250,000 so he doesn't lose his gray two-story house under a foreclosure order.
"If the public didn't care, I as an entertainer wouldn't have been a success," he said.

Diamond, 29, is trying to sell nearly 30,000 shirts — at $15 or $20 (autographed) each — to supplement the income he makes as a standup comic so he doesn't have to move from his Port Washington home, about 25 miles north of Milwaukee.

The T-shirt has a photo of Diamond holding a sign that says, "Save My House." The back of the shirt reads, "I paid $15.00 to save Screeech's house." The third "e" was added to get around copyright laws, he said.

He's selling the shirts on his Web site: http://www.getdshirts.com.

The foreclosure order was filed last month in Ozaukee County Circuit Court, Ozaukee County Circuit Court.

Diamond appeared on Howard Stern's satellite radio show Tuesday to plead his case. "I'm doing great with my comedy, but this is definitely a low point," he said. "Real life comes in and affects you."

Diamond doesn't have a listed phone number, and e-mails to the address on his Web site and at an alternative address were not immediately returned Thursday.

Looks like the BushHitler's economy has claimed another victim where the rich get richer and the obscure, b-list celebrities have to live like the rest of us. For shame…

oh…and WE DIDN'T LISTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am trying to get a conservative digg alternative going called GOP Hub (GOPHub.com). Anything you can do to help with this effort would be awesome. Plus feel free to submit any articles you write here on your blog :). Take care and have a great weekend!

Tamar, In the spirit of Melton, I respectfully disagree with your negative characterizaation of”troops. ” Since the main point of the alternative translation is to contemplate the whole world mobilized to do the work of God, the image that came to my mind was 250,000 Jews marching on Washington to demand freedom for Soviet Jews.
