He always does... I keep an eye on him, like a canary in a coal mine.

Breaking my silence again...

This is truly a community of friends. Many of these who I've tried to help, even though I didn't know them, were simply friends I hadn't met yet.

Charity is full of inconsistencies.

Last week there were some firefighters raising money in the middle of an intersection in my town. You've probably seen it - they collect money in a boot.

What was it for? I don't know. They were playing the hero card to raise money. I'm sure their intentions were good.

Did their cause deserve money from others? Probably, although they didn't think it important to explain what it was. "Hey, we're firefighters, were the good guys!"

One of them walked right up to my car and shoved the stupid boot in the window. I said "no thanks." He looked at me like I was f*#king Ebenezer Scrooge.

I give to the ASCA, the Access Fund. I give to my church.

I have a brother with an incurable debilitating disease and over the years I've given thousands to charities related to that.

I don't give to the pink ribbons, even though I enjoyed the boobs thread.

I give to Goodwill, not so much out of charity but because I hate to throw away stuff that might be useful.

I was a Big Brother for over a decade.

I don't give to individuals simply out of charity, but I try to be generous to friends as so many have been to me.

I don't often tip the luggage guy at the airport, usually because I don't have anything smaller than a twenty.

Am I a generous person? I don't know. But neither does anybody else.

There's no no way to make that call based upon whether or not I give to your cause.

Ayn Rand-ism is exactly what came to mind. Let the bastards die in the street. Each for themselves and one against all. I guess that is what explains the "alone" avatar.


On the other hand, I do wonder if our energy might not be better spent working for universal healthcare and such, rather than piecing back together each person's life one at a time.


Another story worth repeating. I was once sitting with my spiritual teacher, in a village some distance from Calcutta. One well-to-do American commented that there were so many beggars in India, and he knew most of them were cheaters. My Guru's response, "cheating or no, it is good for your hand to learn to let go".
