The Angel Food Ministries nonprofit officers Wingos' 550% salary increase and GOP campaign contributions

As I've written many times, EVERY non profit organization's financials should be public.

Facebook reverts to OLD terms because users stood up for their rights

Since MANY bloggers as well as mainstream media extensively reported on the new Facebook terms, they decided to TEMPORARILY revert back to the OLD terms.

Catholics are expanding and which faith-based and community organizations get funding?

I didn't find anything new about Executive Order 13199 (government funding and training) in a web search.

What to do?

There are alternatives to waiting for the repo guy.
