We know you’ve been browbeaten, and passed your sensitivity training course with flying colors – good boy, have another pink cookie, but don’t get your hands dirty.

Charity starts at home, and before you worry about saving the world, maybe you should focus on your own town, problems that you really know something about, or diseases you might actually get.
