    Gina has moved into the lead, but it's still anyone's game. Mega points are still available for the next week for donating blood or donating some bucks to a blood service organization.

    We have a new points leader, but it's still anybody's game to win 500 bucks for their favorite nonprofit organization.

    Well, I tried.
    I've been giving blood for decades. I made an appointment for Monday afternoon to give a double-red donation at the donor center on E St. in DC.

    When I got there I was told it would be a 45-minute wait (plus, from past experience, the almost 2 hours it actually takes--which is also absurdly inefficient). That was unacceptable, especially since I had an actual appointment. I left.

    After a couple of follow-up conversations with Red Cross people, I have learned something. Yes, there is a blood shortage nationwide. However, that blood shortage has nothing to do with lack of donors, which is what their marketing seems to imply. I had to wait weeks just to get an appointment, because they are completely booked. The shortage is a problem with staffing; there is no shortage of donors. If anything, there are too many donors.

    So my giving blood or not will make no difference in the blood supply. Knowing that, I am not willing to put up with the nonsense of interminable waiting to give blood that someone else would give if I weren't there. Same amount of blood collected either way.

    So no points for me.
