Re: “Charities seek help online, find it” (TNT, 12-19).

The front-page article tells how charities are finding help online in these very lean times to get volunteers and donations to feed homeless Americans. Then I read (TNT, 12-19)  that our government is getting ready to send 240,000 tons of food to North Korea. Yes, North Korea.

Perhaps we need accountability from those we have elected and sent to Washington, D.C., on why we have children and adults in the Untied States going hungry every day, yet we are going to supply food to a country that hates us.

I was told when I was young that “charity begins at home.”
