The worth of money

Oprah recently donated $1 million to aid 30 California charter schools. Meg Whitman, in running for governor, will use $150 million, maybe more, trying to help herself become governor.

I’ve always felt past deeds say more about one’s self than financed public relations.

Think what $150 million could have done to help California’s needy – nonprofits, medical clinics, volunteer fire departments, police unfunded community efforts, etc.

Why would anyone vote for a person who does not understand the value of what a dollar can do?
