Comic Relief

Some brief thoughts on comic relief:

1. It's a great cause.
2. The show is often funny (though also often lame).
3. The celebrities and hosts generally really annoy me.
4. It's a good thing because it does have an impact on people and it raises a lot of money.
5. But is no-one else quite appalled that it takes something like this to persuade people to take notice of the rest of the world and give some money to help, before forgetting about it all for another year?

As mentioned in the sermon at my church this morning, maybe people feel they've done their bit once they've given a fiver over the phone on comic relief night. Then they can go back to forgetting about the starving kids for another year.
What if everyone who gave a fiver on Friday night gave that every week? Wow.
