         The mission of the foundations has always been to improve the quality of life for people who live here.
    From today’s front-page, lead story in the print edition by Susan Baldrige, “Steinman family foundations merge, form one of the largest philanthropic forces in Lancaster County,” (click here). 
         No, Susan, you got that wrong.  Their mission has always been to improve the quality of life for white folks and white folks only. In the 2001 special print edition of the Lancaster Independent Press covering the Lancaster Lynching, I called for the newspapers to give $5,000,000 of their millions back to minority causes in Lancaster to make up for the harm they have done.  Today, that figure should be $25,000,000.
    Please check back later today.

    1. Make that upper socio economic white folks. It’s just as much a class thing as a racial/ethnic thing here in Lancaster. Why doesn’t she tap into some of those millions, drive a mile west and get that hair restyled?? The money she’d save on hair spray could feed an average Lancaster family for a year.

    2. 😛 You are absolutely right about the class thing and I was trying to find a way to say it and you did it perfectly! If she changes her hairstyle, where would the wrens nest?

    3. LOL

    4. Think how much good the Steinman Foundation could do for Lancaster County taxpayers of all demographics if they were to underwrite the annual financial shortfall of the Convention Center. Maybe, by doing so, they could twist the arms of PSP to rework those one-sided agreements, to help put the convention center of more stable financial footing.

      We can all dream, can’t we????!!!!

    5. What a fabulous idea!!!!!!!

    6. It is an excellent idea! I meant to comment on it but it has been a busy day.

    7. I occasionally post and usually disagree with you but on this issue we are of one mind. I can only hope people of her type find extinction soon, much like the dinosaurs.
