Posted on Wed,  Jan. 13, 2010 Reported by Megan Strader FOX Kansas News By the time John Thompson logged onto his Twitter account, Wednesday morning, thousands of messages had already popped up telling him how he can donate to help the people of Haiti. “It didn’t really dawn on me until maybe midday and I thought ‘gosh, is anyone really verifying these messages are legitimate and the money people donate is that really going to go to the people in Haiti and is it going to be efficiently spent?’” A majority of the “tweets” give people a number where they send a text and automatically donate a …

Have you ever experienced the excitement of a first date that was going so well that even before it was over, you were looking forward to a second date? I can recall two occasions in my personal life, both long ago. And in my professional life, I have had five such “dates” in the past 4 years. One of these “dates” was a lunch meeting at Old Mill Tasty Shop that Larry, an underwriting representative with KMUW, our local NPR member station, arranged with the then recently hired director of development, Denise. Before going any further, I should be very clear …
