Color these Heifers Green

I've given to Heifer, International on several occasions. I like the idea of giving poor people a way out instead of a handout.

It is pleasing to me, therefore, to see, in a big press release, that the new 94,000-square-foot Heifer, International headquarters showcases a variety of ecologically aware features, such as a 25,000-gallon, rainwater/graywater collecting tank.

That this merely echoes the early work of other, quieter, eco-activists doesn't detract from the pleasure we feel.

As my father once said about another topic, "When you eat at a great restaurant, you're not upset because other people have eaten there before you."
