An issue of Dish and depression..

Current issue of the Chronicle of Philanthropy has been on my desk for a week. Read it today while waiting for my daughter. Slap, Slap, Slap. One long article after another about well known nonprofits in trouble. Habitat for Humanity, The National Conference of Community and Justice, The United Jewish Communities, and the Boy Scouts all come under scrutiny, and all for good (though widely varied) reasons. Add that to the recitation of federal tax cuts, and I was depressed by the time Caitlin got back in the car.

On the good news side of the equation, the Chronicle reported that we've donated over $745 million to Tsunami victims! Rock on...that's more than twice what the Bushies feel that they can spare from their crusades....
