The Oct. 30 article Report shows Red Cross dropped the ball following Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Isaac, reminded me of my childhood. My father refused to give me a quarter to donate at school to the Red Cross.
His place of work was across the street from the home of a regional top Red Cross executive, and my father told me that he regularly saw luxury cars and other signs of excessive opulence at the residence. This gave him a lack of confidence in the true competence and financial integrity of this charity. If my dad were still with us, I would say to him, Dad, some things never change.
