    The Red Cross will likely spend millions of dollars that people donated to help others to investigate something so obviosly stupid as this. The Red Cross won't receive anymore of my donations if this is how they are going to waste money.

    You just can't fix stupid!!!!

    Screw the Red Cross anyway. They solicited donations for the 911 victims and their families, got millions of dollars, then unashamedly kept an obscene amount of it. Meanwhile some victims are having breathing problems from the debris, others have injuries, and families without a parent were struggling to keep a roof over their heads. For this alone the Red Cross should be boycotted.

    Even CBS (link) reported on this.

    Does that mean I have to trash my "Battlefield 3" I just got.

    Brian,
    What you said about 911 is exactly why they have not received a dime from me since that date.

    I remember the stories of the top guys and gals having their new Limo's backed up at there office in new york after the money started pouring in, discusting.

    I keep my charity money local now, assisting families and folks in real need at home.

    No surrender? That's nothing. There is a feature on the game where if you get shot, you do not immediately die (it's called Final Stand), you lie on the ground with your weapon out, still able to shoot enemies. After a brief period of time, you will "heal" and resume play. Of course the enemy can still kill you and actually gets extra points for an "excecution kill" for finishing off these downed players. Probably not very Geneva friendly either.
