Did you just wake up and smell the coffee, JQP? The best charities in Peekskill are run by the Catholic Church. For the West Side Dems everything they do flows back into their pockets. It's quite sick for anyone who cares about helping those truly in need. The rest of us give hugely without attaching ego like the Dems.

"Don Bennett to Emcee"? That can't possibly be right. There's gotta be a typo in there somewhere. Come on, Patch, shape up.
