Things That Make Me Want To Be Paternalistic

Taggert over at A Random Walk posted a horrifying account of how Katrina survivors are spending their debit cards. Not that I'm against people blowing off a little steam after surviving a disaster, mind you. Its just that I don't want to PAY for it. . .

Between that account, historically mismanaged donations by big agencies like the Red Cross (see this for a more current example of government workers with an excuse to spend money), and already, no-bid contracts offered to Bush cronies in the wake of any opportunistic disaster with Katrina being no different, I wish I hadn't forked over my last Andrew Jackson at our crazy left-wing church today.
