Because of a reporting error, a front-page article Saturday incorrectly said the student would not be charged. The Statesboro Herald regrets the error.

Are you guilty of giving junk to the poor?

When Kristen Welch, blogger at We Are That Family, posted in October an essay called "Dear World: Let's Stop Giving Our Crap to the Poor" an avalanche of commentary followed. Ms. Welch's asserts that those blessed to live in rich countries should give their very best to support those less fortunate. Instead, we often use charity as an excuse to clean out all the broken, stained and unusable items in our house. While many applauded her honesty, others questioned who decides what's crap versus treasure. Should we really fill up landfills instead of donating items to charity ...

I could be wrong, but it seems a safe bet that neither Mike nor Frank got very excited as kids about Christmas or birthday parties, as both normally include gifts that are new rather than old.
