Lou Gehrig's ice buckets

ALS might run in my family. My grandfather died of the disease. And while I'm glad that a millions of dollars have been raised for ALS by this ice bucket challenge fad, it is really strange that the American public will only open their wallet for the cause if everyone they know is posting videos of ice water being dumped on their heads.

So put me in the "Stop Dumping Ice on Your Head Just Give Money" camp. On the other hand, if people want to both dump ice on their heads and give money, I guess I have no problem with that either.
