    I will be taking food to the kids and one of our local doctors has found a building to house them with chaperones (volunteer parents). I donate to the Volunteer Fire Department, EMS, and Police Officers' Assn, Habitat for Humanity and Sheriff's Officers Assn. Not the high school band for a field trip!

      Those are good causes, one's you know personally and can be sure they are using the donations wisely. People, including rich band students, are free to ask, and people are free to say no or yes.

        MY complaint is that they can't see what's in front of them! They live in a vacuum. I am a band supporter (got put in the high school band when I was in the sixth grade and offered a music scholarship to the U. of Texas). Couldn't see my life playing the French Horn in the Houston Symphony.

          Are you saying they're people who ought to be able to afford their avocations and interests, yet they're asking for a handout? I see that a lot. It sometimes seems like there are more people who see themselves as needing assistance than being a potential source of assistance.
