I'll be blunt: the current controversy over the Mother Emanuel donations is depressing, but it was inevitable. Anybody who has paid attention to the large amounts of money being donated and, more importantly, the seemingly haphazard way in which much of it was given — some to the church itself, some to a city fund, some to specific individuals — had to realize that in the end the church, the survivors, and the family members of the fallen would fight for their share of the pie, or at least what they believe their share to be.
