My question was not about giving money;  my question was why folks would
attend such a slide-show.  Tina has clarified this by indicating that she
shows no pictures of starving urchins but, in the end, would YOU attend
such a show?  I certainly would drive far and long to avoid such an
exhibibition if I knew that they were seeking money at the end.

I prefer the direct approach:  ask, and give, and then it goes away.  And,
by the way, my records do not show a contribution from you for the Shell
Defense Fund -- did you make one that failed to get noted?
