Decency Begets Decency

The title comes from Curtis Sittenfeld's "American Wife" - it's what the main character, the nation's semi-fictional first lady, truly wants her daughter to learn about life. It's an ideal for which we all should strive.

If you're looking for a place to make a difference, there's nothing more fundamental than food and The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County serves an important community function. Food banks always get tons of contributions during the holidays, but with Thanksgiving and Christmas still a good ways off, now is the time they really could use your help. If you're lucky enough to be bringing home the bacon in this brutal economy, share a little ham hock with those who need it most.
