The other day I wrote about the horrific (horrific!) abuse of mouse fetuses in conjunction with stem cell research. Today it is the other side of the picture. I can't help but notice that in Burger King's donation giveaway, organizations devoted to the care of animals are coming out way ahead of organizations focused on needy people. At least in New Orleans, my high school (that counts as a "people" organization, even though some might wonder about that) is currently ahead of the Audubon Nature Institute (by 1%). But in Baton Rouge that is not the case: the Animal Welfare Society has 1% more votes than the Medical Center, and 12% more than the Muscular Dystrophy Association!
Consider this a reminder to vote for a "needy people" organizationNew Orleans, the Father Harry Thompson Center, providing education and job training for vulnerable young citizens of an extremely vulnerable city.
