American Red Cross officials must straighten out their organization before their famous icon becomes a symbol of deceit.

The real scandal at the Red Cross is the fact that the presidential appointees to the Red Cross board have been chronic no-shows at board meetings, even after 9/11. The administration has failed horribly in its oversight responsibilities. See the article at http://www.wheremostneeded.org/2006/04/cabinet_noshows.html
