Holy cow, can I really buy a mobile health clinic for $73 to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda?????? Sign me up.

I'm in the top 0.8% of richest people in the world. But then, someone who makes 1,000 a year is still richer than 50% of the world. The thing is, things here are so inflated, that someone making 1,000 USD a year in a third world country may have the same lifestyle as someone making 50,000 here. I can't believe I'm willing to pay 1 USD for a freakin' bottle of water. Ridiculous.

What Bono and Angelina don't get is that such a small percentage of the money that goes to Africa actually goes into the right hands. Crooked governments, ya know.

Thank God for private donations and charities.
