Tonight I was reading a story that was a follow-up to another story he did about school uniforms. The Adopt A Family program has raised $7000 so far and according to the story it adds up to helping 140 kids. Who wouldn't feel good about that? 140 kids getting new uniforms is 140 kids without an excuse to stay home and fall behind. That is never a bad thing no matter where you live. You know all of that money didn't come from the neighborhoods where the poor kids live so it should have been a rare moment outside of a sporting event where everyone could have a sense of community. Wouldn't you know I looked at the comment section and the first comment is from someone called 'buytheplace' who leaves the following words of wisdom:
"And Capo and WWL are soooooooo proud of themselves. So if WWL is such a benefactor, how about donating the other 100 still needed. I love the A+ student bit. WWL and McDonald's donate ALL OF $400 to the student's school!! If that isn't blatant boasting! You want to make a difference WWL and McDonald's?? Donate a couple of grand."
I find it amazing he or she would be so concerned with the kids of New Orleans because he left a comment on another story that went something like this.
"The entire city JUST SUCKS!! It just stinks to the core. There isn't any part of the city that isn't corrupt or savaged."
Why is he so worried about Bill Capo and his helping the savages anyway? Now if that didn't trip me out enough, the follow up comment was someone called pyt92 who posted the following to assist someone that thinks they are savage:
I could not have said it better. They want to glorify these people making minuscule donations. The faculty and staff of John McDonogh and many other public schools have been doing this for years. We have purchased uniforms, shoes, clothes, food, paid rent, etc. If you are going to celebrate, celebrate the efforts of the many not the few. John McDonogh has done a great job trying to live down the lies (yes lies) that were told by the media in 2006. Celebrate that! Do not come to celebrate individuals who are doing a “drive-by” (pardon the choice of words). Celebrate those who sacrifice EVERYDAY for ALL students!
