    Maybe if the Red Cross didn’t do away with locally ran office, there wouldn’t be this issue. It used to be a great thing, now it’s just some bureaucratically ran mess.

    No one is sorrier than I am about the Red Cross office; however, that is what seems to be our future for cost reduction and the lack of the age of Just Do It! (JDI) I am not here to create anger or arguments. I would like to jump in for half of the time needing to be covered.
