Sheila Dixon's Got Plenty of Time for Xbox Now

Unless you live in Baltimore, or some other location in the Delmarva Peninsula, you probably haven’t heard of Sheila Dixon.  Well, she’s the mayor.  Or, to be more factual, she was the mayor.  That’s because she was caught using gift cards meant for the poor to buy an Xbox 360 for herself.

The Xbox in question

Tsk and tsk Mrs. Dixon.  Onto the Island you go.  Fwoosh!

But I feel there might be others deserving of a ticket to permanent exile.  Namely those who came up with the idea to give poor people…

Gift cards?

Seriously?

“Hey Mister Needy Homeless Person, here’s a $25 gift card to Starbucks.  Now I can sleep at night.”

If there is any good to come out of this, it’s that you can buy the Xbox in question (plus a copy of Need for Speed Carbon!) on eBay to support Youthworks of Baltimore.  So, if you got some money to throw around for charity, throw it Baltimore’s way.  Or do something local.

Just don’t buy any damn gift cards.
