I grew up in Santa Barbara, now live very close to the Garden and have loved going there since I was a child. I was supportive of their plans, not because I was particularly well informed, but just out of good will. Well, as far as I am concerned, a rock has been up turned and there is nasty stuff underneath. The pay of high level administrators by itself is enough to make me see red. Regardless of one's view of the issues, they have a public relations nightmare on their hands and need to take radical action to redeem this situation.

What a great and informative article. We have been thinking just this way. We're just waiting for one of us to turn 55!

I wonder about this. The Salvation Army has been one of the top revenue-raising charities in the United States, or within a place or two of the top for many years. Combining charitable fundraising, governmental grants, and other revenues, the Salvation Army pulled in $1.3 billion from private sources, $2.8 billion total, in one recent year.

In 2004 they got a bequest of $1.5 billion from the estate of McDonalds heiress Joan Kroc. Where does that go? Where does the bell-ringer money go? Why can't they bail out this program and make it work? Why does it have to be self-sustaining? Something doesn't smell right to me.
