My Final Post to YCYC
The generating impulse of YCYC (Your Country Your Call) is such a fine and noble effort in these times. The prime sponsors of the initiative, our President and her husband, could not have a higher esteem by my estimation.
However, from that fine genesis, the idea becomes confused and clouded. The web site is looking like a joke with a large percentage of “submissions” which are either spoofs, or have a very poor standard of content and/or presentation. Then there is this blog which does not operate very well and is not moderated properly.
But most of all the idea of having a competition with a large monetary reward for nation saving ideas is like offering to pay Connolly or Pearse for their services. There should be no monetary reward offered for the honour of serving ones country in its time of need.
Finally, the idea of employing an international drinks vendor as a major sponsor is, at least, most distasteful and unbecoming of an initiative born of such high and noble beginnings.
