I wrote to Bill Schambra congratulating him on his tour de force in the Chronicle of Philanthropy poking urbane fun at the very concept of "root causes." That laissez faire Capitalism might be questioned by various do-gooders draws his mock-incredulity. In passing, he manages to make my friend, Tracy Gary, look ridiculous for her opposition to racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and environmental destruction. As I was floundering about trying to write an earnest rebuttal, in comes an email from Bill asking to be remembered to Miss Candidia Cruikshanks, CEO of Wealth Bondage, my generous patron and his. We are all, I am afraid, caught in a frame not of our own making. Bill and I are of the same company - faithful servants to She who Rules us All. As Candidia says, "There is no alternative, Sweetie, so kiss my boots."
