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."
