Someone sent me an e-mail noting (in a humorous fashion) that it was very clever of me to collect up all your money for a donation I can take a tax deduction on. Not that I think any of you were particularly worried about this, but in case you were, no, I have no plans to take a deduction for the donation. It wasn’t my money, I was just passing it on. I don’t think it would be very ethical for me to take the deduction.
However, I am taking the American Express points I got for charging the donation to my card. Because daddy needs a free trip. Hope you don’t mind.
