I have never seen any of the pictures you have identified as being shown at your fund-raising shows. Again, I question why any stable individual would go to a viewing such as this unless they were so guilt-laden as to render them irrational. But, then, as the old saw runs, it does take all kinds to make a universe, and I deeply appreciate this. I am in the job of representing the underclass and I am really insulated from hits for charity. I did give a chunk of money on Friday last but this was to a friend in a world of hurt who will work it off, and whom I turst to do such: this was not a contribution so much as an advance on wages. But, in the end, I do hide my light under a bushel as no one, other than my secretary and I, know the folks for whom I am not charging a fee or for whom I am charging a 10% fee.
