The American Caliban
I just got an automated phone call from the recorded voice of one Peter Bell, who apparently is in charge of C.A.R.E.|
I immediately started to cringe, partly because I hate automated phone calls and partly because I thought “oh no, they aren’t going to...”
He delivered a short eulogy to Margaret Hassan and then asked that everyone honor her memory by working for a more peaceful world. And he didn’t ask for a contribution, or even give contact info or tell me to go to a website or anything. He just said thank you.
So, despite the automated phone call, I’ve got say this guy is a class act.
