    Yes, Kendall, the lengthy comments section is indeed revealing, and rather depressing, in that it shows such a wild range of opinions, with relatively little in the way of evidence cited. Lots of heat and emotion, little light and reason.

    As someone else pointed out at SFIF, check out World Vision at Charity Navigator. Not such a well run organization. Why not support other Charities? Take a look at [url=]Charity Navigator[/url] for better options.
