In a phone call with my Mom this am, she told me about something completely outrageous, and so I did a search, and the first link I came upon happened to be from PBS.org.. I will enter a synopsis here, and let you either make a decision to read on or ignore what is happening to the country.
In an article from The HoustonChronicle by Cynthia L. Garza, titled “Katrina funds earmarked to pay for Niel Bush’s software program.
Seems Mrs. Bush donated an undisclosed amount of cash to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund with specific (emphasis on word here mine) instructions that the money be spent with an educational software company owned by her son Neil.
If you want the entire report, either link to PBS to read the copy here, or go to the Houston Chronicle website and read it there, but what ever you do , JUST READ it. I have a feeling that as much as the Internet frees us to have more information at our finger tips, it also keeps much from us. If the leading news organizations don’t see merit in a story, they might not post it to their websites and update pages, so if you happen to get feeds from say CNN, or any of the other news organizations, you might not see these types of reports. Thank goodness for my Mom, she keeps me informed.
We, as Americans had better start paying attention to these little pieces of news, the items that seem to be slipping under the radar.This might seem not so dangerous to us now , but what other news items are we missing?
