I’ll bet you can’t name all eight reindeer and the seven dwarfs. I sure couldn’t.
On Blitzen, on Prancer and Bambi and Dancer! I knew there were Dopey and Sneezy and Needy and Wheezy — but “Doc”? How could a “Doc” have gotten in there. And did you know that Rudolph is not one of the eight?
But I digress.
Nicholas Kristof — neither a reindeer nor a dwarf but a mensch — writes for the thriving, indispensable New York Times. He offers a giving guide for the man or woman who has everything — in a world where so many have naught. Deworm a child for 50 cents? Give a family a flock of chicks for $20? He makes great suggestions.
Or how about this? Give the New York Times itself!
Have you noticed? The days are getting longer! (Eat your heart out, Argentina.) Summer’s in the air!
