It appears that our names have been permanently included in the “Bleeding Hearts” mailing list.

We were recently away for five days. One day was a Sunday, so from a “mail” perspective, it was four days.

When we returned home, I went to the Post Office to retrieve our “held” mail. Along with catalogues, magazines, sales pitches and bills were a stack of solicitations from various charities and interest groups.

The following are the organizations that hit us up for donations:

The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation

The Venice Family Clinic

The Make-A-Wish Foundation

Amnesty International

Habitat For Humanity


The United Way

Americans For Peace Now

The American Foundation For The Blind

The American Kidney Fund

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The American Heart Association

The American Red Cross

Save The Redwoods

The Actors Fund of America

and the

St. Joseph Indian School

Sixteen solicitations for money.

In only four days.

What am I supposed to do?


Happy Canada Day, you guys., A poppy - I would gladly pay for.

Dear Mr. Pomerantz; following up the sixteen pitches for help with one of your own gave me a grin this Rememberance Day.

I wish I could find a poppy here in California, too.
