As Scott Raab and the other volunteers at Move America Forward, based in Sacramento,  loaded boxes of non-perishables with a Christmas twist en route to troops in Afghanistan Monday morning, they realized that the lock to the storage unit containing the boxes had been chopped open overnight and 25 boxes – a $5,000 value – had been stolen.

The organization had been collecting items for months, and the packages included soaps and deodorants, candy and dried meats, coffee and tea, and a festive touch of stockings and holiday cards hand-written by thankful community members.

    @Diann, “And people say we are not suffering cultural rot.”

    WHO says that? Everybody I know says the rot is irreversible.

    Norman:
    I envy you. I live in blue New York in uber blue Syracuse. Here, I am treated like Cassandra howling prophesies that nobody is listening to. The only response I seem to get is, “Right, and Obama’s a socialist. Yeah, whatever, Diann.”

    If and when they catch these shit heads, they should be sure and note their party affiliation. Race would be nice too.
