From USA Today:

“More than 60,000 people have signed a Facebook petition pleading with ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to restore the home of a grieving mother and daughter whose Buffalo, N.Y., house was flattened by the Continental Airlines commuter plane that crashed on Feb. 14, leaving 49 dead. Karen Wielinski and her daughter Jill fled the house after Flight 3407 hit, but her husband, Douglas, was among those killed in the disaster. Jayne O’Connor, 17, a senior at Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart, started a Facebook group to publicize the petition and it has received much support. An executive producer of Extreme Makeover would say only that the petition was being considered.”

I’d say this goes in the category of “Duh.” Of course, yes, EM should jump at this opportunity. See the story on ABC News.
