    Robin characterization is terrible. No idea who that is, not Dick Grayson. Raven looked cool, that was interesting. Hawk and Dove? Really? Beast Boy looked good. I don't even know what the Hell they were doing with Kori's look. Was her hair on fire? Flamethrower blasts? Yuck. Looked awful. Absolutely terrible. I'm a big Starfire fan (and was equally horrified about recent comic treatment, so maybe it's just the character's lot), that was an awful rendition. Hopefully they don't make her a murder space trollop. Hard pass. And I'll probably get the service for Young Justice 3, so they won't care.

    Was only an example. I've seen anonymous donations that are equivalent and anonymous, my point is that nonprofit is still a business and are fully driven by revenue motivation to a large extent. Mission matters, but so does sustainability. Predatory lenders, slum lords, and the like are well represented among the donor set. Kaiser Permanente is a nonprofit (in part, they've got a sophisticated melding of for profit and nonprofit optimized for best effect). That isn't to say they don't do good work. They also have been sued and fined, particularly on the behavioral health side, for bad behavior. Sorry, it's a tangent. I just know too much about the sector not to be triggered. When folks wrap themselves in a cloak of righteousness in the community then secretly engage in shady practices it triggers me. And yes, I know some very good nonprofits that aren't like that. But they also aren't financially successful beyond a certain scale ($2M or so annual budget). Seems like I can count on one hand the ones bigger than $5M that I have faith in, and none over $20M. YMMV. I'll back out of the thread now, sorry for the derail.

    Well, yeah. As someone who worked extensively in that sector "nonprofit" only means they are a 501c3 tax exempt organization. Just another word for business. I've seen "charities" in healthcare take money from Philip Morris. Just depends on the size of the check and you'll see a lot of moral negotiation.

    Interesting article. I found the ACLU leadership (particularly Romero) to be thoughtful and principled in their defense of their position, even though they obviously knew it was not a popular position with some of their staff. I'm glad they continue to defend our rights, even those of individuals I find repugnant.

    We are big on that whole First Amendment thing out here. Crazy left wing state and all that. He can run. Say whatever he wants. And be ridiculed/blown out at the polls. As it should be.
