ramblings from the noisedoctor

upon further review, beggars opt to not be choosers

Isn’t it frustratingly ironic when “beggars” opt to be “choosers” as well?

The Marine Reserves’ Toys For Tots program has announced that it will accept 4,000 “talking Jesus dolls.” They had earlier declined.

“The talking Jesus doll issue has been resolved,” the organization announced on its Web site Wednesday. “Toys for Tots has found appropriate places for these items. We have notified the donor of our willingness to handle this transaction.”

In explaining the initial decision, Bill Grein, vice president of Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, in Quantico, Va., had said the program didn’t want to take the risk of offending a Jewish or Muslim family if they received a Jesus doll.

I’m not sure if I’ve lost what respect I did have for the Toys For Tots program.
