Make No Mistake...you read right. The headline (rhetorical) question is/was: Why should I care about...
One of my favorite blogs, JapanCinema.net, is an Asian/Anime film review site.
This week (March 15 -20) the site is sponsoring a Blog-a-thon to raise funds for the latest natural disaster. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, all have heard or read about the 2011 Japanese Tsunami. Not to mention the Nuclear power plant's meltdown and all.

Ok, What's in It for Me?
Right now, Y'all are thinking, What a Selfish Jerk! Well U R Correct. 'I AM a Selfish Jerk!' The principles of giving, after all, are a Selfish Act.
We goad ourselves into thinking --out loud--that we care and give generously because we are connected as humans. To a small degree, I support that ideology. But...
I find that the Most Generous Givers, are the Most Selfish. They Give for Selfish reasons.
Giving Makes Me Feel...
When I help people, I Feel Good! Soul Singer, James Brown, said it best. I Feel Good!
Whenever, I am in a position, physically and financially to give or help, I feel good...No, I feel powerful. I feel God-Like.
The Japanese Need Help!
Forget this self-effacy debate; this philosophical dribble. The tsunami victims Don't care Why I or You give or help. They are suffering; cold, desperate, destitute, and demoralized.
If you feel pity -- GIVE! Selfish ego-stroking (as do I)--GIVE! A religious attonement for a vow of holiness? GIVE? It doesn't matter...GIVE.
