A holiday lesson: One young N.J. athlete's devotion to his sick mother

A holiday lesson: One young N.J. athlete's devotion to his sick mother

Hungry and alone, Vaida Jefferson lies in a cold, dark apartment, waiting for her son to come home.
She has barely moved in 11 hours. A rumpled purple comforter covers her frail, 100-pound body. Her rail-thin legs are folded and bunched toward her chest, stiff and stubborn.

The television, as it does so often, marks her countdown on this late October day.

"The Queen Latifah Show" in the morning.

The news at noon.

"Judge Alex" between 1 and 2.

And then, "Everybody Loves Raymond" reruns.

At times, she stares out her second-floor window, gazing at the mountains stretching from Passaic County toward western Jersey. But now they have been swallowed by darkness, so Vaida knows her boy will be home soon.

At 6:43 p.m., she hears a key slide into the front door. A small smile crosses her face.

Dinesh D'Souza has managed to reach further into the slime with his tweet about PBO:

@DineshDSouza:
I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!

Nasty. Just nasty!

Giving to the Salvation Army- Let me ask this:

If they were singling out African-Americans, someone who is Jewish, or another group would you be so accepting of 'a little bigotry'?

It is not ok. Their charity provides needed services, but they also use it as a cover for their bigoted views and missionary goals. If they are criticized, their good works are thrown up as a shield. Posts here prove that.

Is it a purity test? If that's what you call it then yes. Why is not giving aid to a group that advances bigotry a purity test? I think it is a reasonable request.

Oh, and some of those kids they feed now will be shunned later by them. In addition, people who receive their help are in a lot of cases likely to also give more credence to their beliefs. Bigotry spreads in many ways.

There are many groups who provide services for the needy without a side of nasty. They also have good ratings for how much of their money actually goes to charity.

So give your heart out to the Santa bells. Just realize they aren't ringing only for peace, goodwill, and donations.
