Getting Your 46 Cents Worth
Last fall, I made a donation to one of the political parties. I am not terribly political, but I wanted to "test the system" as it were since I was reading a lot about the candidates' fundraising tactics. About two months after my donation — and well after the election — I received my receipt. But by that point, it was nothing more than a missed opportunity — and a terrible waste of 46 cents.
