    •  Red Cross messed up in San Diego (none)
      Thanks for the link. I sent an email to the Los Angeles Times AND to local San Diego papers. Several years ago there was a big fire in San Diego. A lot of people gave money to the Red Cross  and specified that it was for the "Alpine fire" victims, but the victims didn't get it. At the same time, the local Red Cross CEO, Dodie Rotherham, got a hefty bonus, which was based on how much money poured into the San Diego Red Cross that year. After a public outcry, Dodie was fired and the Red Cross  seemed to shake up their organization.  Thinking that the Red Cross cleaned up their act, I have recommended that people contribute to the Red Cross rather than some unknown internet entity. Maybe that is not such a good idea.
      I have also read reports that Red Cross workers are being intimidated and that some people are coming to aid stations and taking all the stuff.  The National Guard was supposed to be there 24/7, but showed up for only one day and left. Any truth to that?
