Why J.J. Watt??

Da Nooz tells us that J.J. Watt's Houston-relief fund is now at $180 million (and counting.)

That's absolutely GREAT!!  Pewaukee boy/NFL star, winning, American way, and all that. 

Now step back and ponder that for a moment.

The Country Class just sent $180++ MILLION to a nice young man who promises to use it responsibly to assist victims of a hurricane.  This is money that is not even tax-deductible (so far.)

It is also money which did NOT go to the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, United Funds, Lutheran Relief, or any of the other long-existing, entrenched, and--dare we say it--"Establishment" charities.
