    I wish he'd modify his shtick, since she most certainly worked for profit.

    •  I don't know about that but I do know 2 people who (7+ / 0-)

      worked as volunteers w/Mother Theresa. They were impressed by her willingness to care for the sickest, poorest patients.  I'm a nurse and when the AIDs epidemic was at it's earliest stages, we had a patient with AIDS dementia, so many Kaposi sarcoma lesions that he looked blue and total incontinence. Those Mother Theresa nuns or whatever they are in the blue and white saris would come to the unit 3 or 4 times a week and feed him, entertain him, etc. They were volunteers. It was Albert Einstein who said " Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value." Mother Theresa may have pushed the Catholic church's more conservative doctrines but she improved the lives of many. Can the same be said of Christopher Hitchens?
