Fact of the Week

Fact of the Week

When we wrote in October 2001 about the lunacy of having children send cash in the mail to the White House for the Fund for Afghan Children, we worried about how quickly that money would get to Afghanistan, given justified concerns about anthrax in the mail. We also worried about sending cash in the mail, period. Sometimes, we hate being right.

Last month, two Philadelphia men who worked for a company that is decontaminating a huge amount of White House mail were arrested for mail theft. Among the mail they had stolen were thousands of letters with money for the Fund for Afghan Children.
