Help Local Writer Get to Ellen DeGeneres

Dreams -- we've all got 'em.  Some of us want to be rich and famous; others of us just want Jon Bon Jovi to divorce his wife and come on over. Local writer / open-mic event host Renda Writer has made no secret of his fantasy: getting on the Ellen Degeneres show to read a poem he wrote.

Thing is, the determined Renda is bent on making his dream a reality through positive thinking (he's read The Secret) -- and a little help from his friends. (Me, I'm relying on that voodoo doll of Mrs. Bon Jovi.)

Here's the petition you can sign to help out Renda.  And here's his latest video:
