    I agree - and it is not because of my politics.

    It is also good business. When you watch the advertisements on television, do you notice the advertisement for the franchise chicken restaurant or that the guy who sells discounted garage doors manages to stick in a phrase "we're all in it together". Do you really believe that line of b.s.?

    A business has to show that it is with it. I know a local defense contractor who gave every Negro American worker a title promotion after the 1965 Watts Riots. The actual work didn't change. There have always been opportunities for a business to donate money to a childcare facility, a battered woman shelter. Won't get the publicity.

    My late wife had us donating toys to the county orphanage before it was closed and the local battered woman's shelter. Do you think that major US corporations were doing it? Think again. No public relations mileage.
