I've been a pain in the keister all this month,
haranguing you, dear reader, at every
opportunity to cough up a little
spare change for
the hungry here in America.
Well, you ain't heard nothin' yet, amigos.
It seems that 37 million Americans received food stamps in
September. That's one in 8 of your countrymen. It's
a record no one should be proud of.
Yeah, I know... who has the money to spare for others these
days? Well, let me tell ya. One of Raging Pencils 's frequent
visitors emailed me yesterday to tell me that he'd just
donated money to his local food bank... out of his disability
Dude, that is one of the definitions of "hard core", squeezing
blood out of that fiduciary rock, in my book and well worth
a cyber shout-out.
You go, Mark! You go, indeed!
Now quit putting off the inevitable, you louts, and visit
Harvest/Feeding America website
and they'll give you all the details. The best
time to donate is probably late at
night while drunk, when you are feeling fondly
disposed toward your fellow man and will not
remember it later. This way it will be possible
to give money more than once while feeling the
same agreeable glow of conscientious generosity
anew every time.
