Heinz Kerry revises Maslow 

David pointed out this story (his original link is dead, mine doesn't have his picture) in which Teresa Heinz Kerry has decided a different hierarchy of wants:

Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators.

"Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids," said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. "Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes."

I kind of get what you mean, Madame, but first of all they're donations, and second of all your husband has enough trouble without having you prattle on with "Let them eat generators."
