Get over it, people



You just know that's what the rich powers-that-be at the United Way are thinking — at least if you judge by this Q&A with interim United Way CEO Mac Everett. What a prickly, uh, character. Check it out if you want to be further angered by the current situation. The leadership just clearly aren't getting why people won't shut up. It's class warfare on both ends: The middle-class donors tiring of donating to this bloated agency that fills a vital function, and the rich folks wondering why people won't just get over it, already! And that damn Charlotte Observer, with all their pesky questions — who do they think they are to question him like that?

The indignities one must suffer for $20,000 a month.
