I believe youre wrong Osso. MAke a Wish Foundation began in Phoenix back in the 80's when a bunch of the Phoenix Police got together to grant a dying wish for a kid with leukemia. He wanted to be a cop. SO the cops pitched in and got him a unform and a badge and hat. The beginning of the Foundation was modest but it spread east from Phoenix and via Philly and New Jersey, it spread to other urban areas around the country and has become a XCharitable Organization under the Fed tax code.(501-3(c)).
They have branches in Canada and one in the UK now . Granting seriously ill kids a wish that could make "It the greatest time in my life" is not to be looked at with distrust , especially when its so grassroots oriented. Anyone who donates and supports Make a Wish (like Mysteryman and Me-two guys who cant even agree on the LAw of Gravity), I think that the organization is doing exactly what a God would like his creatures to be doing for each other (if there were such a guy).
Was there ever any flapdoodles about MaW? yepper, there certainly was. Back in the 80's a kid might have wished to go , say, elk hunting in ALaska, So the Foundation would pay for a trip for the kid and a guardian to go to ALsaka, be outfitted and take up on a big elk (or maybe some other wild animal) HUNT.
Well, the anti hunting people got themselves involved and now, there are no longer any hunts available to the kids.
"Ok kid, you with the leukemia, what do you wish for? You can do anything except hunt or fish."
Im a cynical bastard osso, but not about MaW. They are a bunch of big hearted people who put all differences aside to get something done for a kid who may have an acute illness.
