Presents For Me

Present season (otherwise known to many as "Hanukah" or "Christmas" is coming! Yes, it is, a mere 3-plus-a-bit months away. The Federal government is letting us all down, the middle class is getting squeezed out of existence, and the plight of the poor is measurably worse than it was three weeks ago. We have the homeless, the unemployed, and the uninsured.

Maybe we should give each other slips of paper for the holidays?

You know the kind. "$50 was donated to Habitat For Humanity in your name." That kind of thing, whether for Katrina's victims or otherwise.

What do you think?

Over at my place I have a link to a page I created with that in mind called "Katrinamas". That's what I'm doing this year.

For the kids, there are things available that donate the proceeds to assistance agencies.

Frankly I have all of the "stuff" I will ever need, and there are a lot of people right now who have nothing.

A lot of groups will send a card to those who are named in your gift.
