If you haven't given yet...

Earlier there was a bit of a to-do about Target's saying "no" to all solicitations, including the annual Salvation Army drive. There's also been a whole "buy blue" thing happening, in which people that vote "blue" are supposed to buy from companies that support "blue" causes (for example, Powells is preferable to Amazon).

Now, here's a conundrum: Walmart, a huge "red" supporter, has come to the Salvation Army's aid:Wal-Mart's Salvation Army save (รพ: Major Dad 1984). So, what do "blues" do? Here's my suggestion: forget the blue/red crap (for a great rant on that topic, go read Aravis' blog). People aren't one or the other, and neither are corporations.

Give to Sally A. and feel good about it.

'Nuff said.
