Women, looks count louder than actions

Shaula Evans posted at Blogging of the President about Sarah McLachlan's video, World On Fire. After reading a story on the Engineers Without Borders Web site, McLachlan and her production company donated the $150,000 production budget to projects like running a street children's hospital in India for a year, schooling for 100 street children in Tanzania, and education for 200 students in Ethiopia.   "The only production expense was $15, the cost of a Sony mini DV tape."

What kind of comments did people men post? "The amount of money wasted on ephermeral crap is astounding." ... "This is a very nice video, but it's consumer politics." ... "So instead of feeding the children of her postproduction company's office manager's secretary, she fed somebody somewhere else." ... "I think the $15 is on poor Sarah's face, though. Man."

And then there's the man who, seeing the poster of the three girls who say yes to boys who say no, said: "Yuck. Between those gals and the Army, I'd pick the Army."

These girls happened to be the Baez sisters, Joan at left, Pauline (Marden, now Bryan) center, and Mimi (Farina) d. 2001, right.
