What a great story! Republican politicians are always putting Hollywood celebrities down when they support a Democrat or get involved in social or political problems , but in actuality, in their own way many of them are doing much more good than they are --and their motives are pure.

I saw it. A little more for chocolate is fine.

Thx Cal, I've been buying what is called here "fair trade" chocolate for years, though we are not getting supplied from the DRC but mainly from South America. The taste of these products is so much better (I always chose at least 60% cocoa) that they are well worth the slightly higher price.
