    I’ve alway admired the Salvation Army but this makes me wonder. From the Houston Chronicle:

    Some toy drives check immigration status

    They don’t claim to know who’s been naughty or nice, but some Houston charities are asking whether children are in the country legally before giving them toys.

    In a year when more families than ever have asked for help, several programs providing Christmas gifts for needy children require at least one member of the household to be a U.S. citizen. Others ask for proof of income or rely on churches and schools to suggest recipients.

    The Salvation Army and a charity affiliated with the Houston Fire Department are among those that consider immigration status, asking for birth certificates or Social Security cards for the children.

    Now, now, settle down there, ol’ fella…

    I just saw Jessica at Rotary. I asked her how her boss, the governor, was doing. She said he was hanging in there, curse the luck…

    Actually, “curse the luck” is my commentary, not hers. Jessica would see that as a good thing…

    Burl, if you come over here, I’m sure I can fix you up a shift ringing with Jessica or Stephanie or Ann Marie or other toothsome lovelies from Cola Rotary….

    and folks, it really is a hoot! I would do more than the three I have except that my knee tricks out for a day or two afterwards….

    The little kids who timidly creep up to put money on the kettle, the clearly former clients of Salvation Army who are very dedicated to paying back generously….really does put me into the Christmas spirit….
