Barack getting help from the dead?
The Democratic Presidential Nom is not exactly lurking around cemeteries... actually the Grateful Dead just announced that they will reunite on October 13th for a fundraiser for Senator Barack Obama, according to dead.net. Details on where the show will be are still pending, but foxnews.com reported that the concert will take place in either Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and possibly lead to future band shows.
