The compliments need to stop before I start believing them and take them to the point of becoming smug myself.

I have reality to keep my ego in check. It always finds a way to make me realize my own arrogance and limits.

Sowieso*, I appreciate the kind words.

*It is Deutsch for "anyway".

I think I see where you're coming from, and I'm glad we now have a clear situation.

Personally I don't give to any charity that doesn't help someone I know. I give to cancer charities most often, because my wife was diagnosed with hodgkins at a pretty young age and it has had a toll. Eighty percent or so of the worlds population live in coastal regions. This just happens to be on almost every Fault line we know of, the rest are under water, so at some point I have to say "move, or deal with it".

I just heard someone say: "I'd send them money... if they were white."

Wow.

I give money to the NCSE National Center for Science Education as my way of embodying Satan the Adversary and putting my money where my mouth is when I growl, "Get real."
