Just As I Thought

Big controversy, big money

Remember all the brouhaha about Target banning Salvation Army bell ringers from the front of its stores? Remember all the predictions of gloom and doom that ensued?
It turns out that Salvation Army donations rose 7 percent in the DC area this season, to $2.5 million dollars. Donations rose 2.4% nationally, to $95.3 million.
Holy crap — any organization that takes in that kind of money should keep their mouth shut and just keep shoveling it in.
