The last time I checked -- this morning -- George Martin was on SW 74th Street, just west of Oklahoma City, moving between 3 and 4 mph and heading west.
He's walking across the country.
Martin, a former New York Giants player, is trying to raise money to help the first responders to the World Trade Center attacks, by walking from the East to the West Coast. He wants to raise $10 million for health care for the responders who were rushing into what everyone else was running from. He's more than halfway there, and he's only at $1.7 million according to his Web site.
