Why Can't Beggars Just Be Honest?

Today I received a letter with a “Par Avion Air Mail” stamp on it at work which of course made me interested about the contents. It turns out that it was a fundraising letter from the American Life League with a letter inside purportedly written by the president, Judie Brown.

I may have mentioned before that I abhor dishonest fundraising letters. This fake air mail was a new bit of dishonesty that goes along with the “official surveys”, “certified mail”, fake handwriting, guilt trips with Chinese trinkets cutesy post scripts and letters that are written by paid organizations instead of the person who actually supposedly wrote them.

If you want my money, just come out and say it. Don't lie to me.
