(Continued)

The American public has been well trained to ask the wrong questions, thus the pressure to spend very little money on capacity is powerful. Yet the lack of capacity to achieve results is very real.

Nancy Vaughan is president of United Way of Madison County Inc. Her column appears the fourth Sunday of each month. She can be reached at n.vaughan@unitedwaymadisonco.org or 608-3061.
