Holinger: Get the biggest buck for your bang

Your doorbell rings. Some kid in a para-military uniform (a blue-jeaned adult looming behind him) stands on your porch. Opening the door triggers a prepared speech gauged to elicit guilt and pity. A wrinkled document unfolds in your face with 100 varieties of popcorn, cookies or candy. Next to the colored chart, you recognize neighbors’ hurried signatures.
