Journal of No. 118


November 17th, 2008

In case you see any bell-ringers this holiday season @ 03:43 pm


The Salvation Army extended health benefits to domestic partners in 13 states, but the national organization rescinded the order.

"We've been listening to our internal and external constituencies, and we now confirm adherence to biblical principles concerning marriage and the family," said Theresa Whitfield, the Salvation Army's media relations director.

In October, the Salvation Army's commissioners decided to let the four U.S. territories determine their health care policies, and the Western Territory was the only one to expand benefits. On Monday, the commissioners decided to return health care policymaking to the national level.

The good news is, I've been looking for ways to cut back this holiday season...

Guess who just joined the United Way as a group I used to give a lot of money to whom I no longer give any money.
