Ordinary Folks Give While the Rich Take

Author Norman Sullivan puts his finger on the priorities of the Bush administration where there are no consquences for misdeeds or mistakes. Sullivan writes:

There is something egregiously obscene about the people in charge of the U.S. government telling citizens to donate money for a hurricane relief effort while the administration, from the president on down, has viciously abdicated its most basic responsibilities.

For the activities it views as really important, like the war on Iraq, the Bush White House hardly requires private contributions while siphoning off vast quantities of taxpayer funds. But when the task is to save lives instead of destroying them, kids are supposed to bust open their piggy banks.
