SMOC is Big Business
As you can see in the graph above, SMOC is big business.  For Jim Cuddy, it delivers a $180,000 annual salary, and Jerry Desilets is approaching $100,000. We know that Desilets job is not exactly critical since he could leave it for six months to run for the state senate. He lost Framingham because of his association with SMOC.

Amusingly enough, the 2004 SMOC annual report states on the cover that it's the 40th anniversary of the War on Poverty. The chart says that we are losing this war. Another war to lose.

Now we are fighting a three front war....

  • War on Poverty
  • War on Drugs
  • War on Terrorism
As the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer, we can expect SMOC to continue fighting a losing war at our expense. Should we donate money to charities when we see governments helping themselves to our money and giving it away?

Jim Cuddy and Jerry Desilets are doing just fine at our expense.
