Uncharitable thoughts

Via Southern Appeal, I note that the founder of Habitat for Humanity has been fired for sexual harassment. He contends that his rural Georgia upbringing made him physically demonstrative. Pah. Old dogs can learn new tricks, like respecting women's wishes to not have their space invaded.

I've posted before about my disillusionment with Habitat, but the departure of a rump-slapping good old boy won't change the fact that the charity is more about helping volunteers feel good about themselves than about providing houses for the deserving poor.
