The Big(ger) Picture
"Don't send money to Japan." Depending on how you word it, you get anywhere from 3,000 to 8 million results for a Google search of that concept. Some are people complaining that Americans give too much overseas and not enough to help folks in their own backyards. Others question the integrity and effectiveness of the organizations collecting the money. There's reaction to Japan telling the world, "Gee, thanks, that's nice and all — but we really don't need your money." And so on.
