Feed the hungry, oh wait, the rich

The alarm seemed to blare out through the darkness this morning. Even the cat looked annoyed. It was 6 a.m. and time to get up so Jennifer could get out to a Maple Valley church to help feed the homeless b-fast.

It was part of the community service for the Honors Society at AHS. Great, fine, we'll get her there on time, and we were treated to a great sunrise this am as we travelled east to Highway 18.

As we pulled up to the church, the sign out front had some chatter condemning evolution.

"Oh great, I'm really going to fit in well with this church," Jennifer said.

"You're here to feed the hungry not debate creationism vs. Darwin," I said, as I walked her in to make sure we were in the right place.

Inside the church dining room were well dressed ladies and a spread to die for in the main corridor. Really? They were going to feed the hungry this and not pancakes?

Nice of 'em.

When I picked Jennifer up 3 hours later, however, she was swinging between laughter and outrage.

There were no hungry at this b-fast, only rich donors to the church who were parking their Lexus' and Beemers in the lot. And the kids got to snack after the adults had their fill too.

Oh well, so much for feeding the poor.
