Clarification On Monday's Pat Boone Story
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Quick clarification, if you don't mind this morning. Think of this as almost the last word in business. We reported yesterday on Pat Boone's new line of meat products. He said he's donating to what he described as conservative causes and joked of becoming the conservative Paul Newman. One of Boone's charities is Mercy Corps, which aids the needy overseas.
After our broadcast, Mercy Corps asked us to clarify that their humanitarian work is non-political and not affiliated with a religious group.
