Pecunia non olet

Following in the wake of the passing of Gary Gygax, GenCon decided that the proceeds of its charity auction would be directed to Gygax' favorite charity, the Christian Children's Fund. However, due to the immoral nature of role-playing, the charity turned the money down. What a kick in the nuts. I guess the silver lining is that 60 children were not fed and clothed for a year. Wait, no... That sucks.
