Those kinds of community organizers are all action and no words. God bless ‘em.

^ When they showed up they worked their asses off and didn’t proselytize or look for any praise…they worked. Then left.
The Lympians got annoyed when we couldn’t drop what we were doing once their vegan free range goulash was done…

Not surprised. And I bet the Mormons helped clean up after the ‘Lympian “cooks.”

I do not trust Mormons as either a religious or a social movement (nor any other religion either — I am an equal opportunity distruster), but I am always impressed with *DEEDS*.
