Up With People's benefit concert for the Challenge Foundation last weekend at UC Irvine's Bren Events Center grossed about $22,000 from attendance of about 3,000. Combined with private and corporate grants totaling $25,000, the vocal troupe more than met the terms of a $30,000 challenge grant to the foundation from the Mission Viejo Co. The money will be used for a hydrotherapy pool for handicapped children, to be built at Philip J. ReillySchool in Mission Viejo.

Up With People? I know what you're thinking: Good cause, good kids, big smiles. All this youthful optimism and love-for-your-fellow-man stuff must add up to a pretty saccharine show, right? Who do they think they're kidding? I mean, this is sophisticated, urbane Orange County. Wrong-o. Now wait a minute. Am I editorializing here? After all, newspaper writers are supposed to be objective and dispassionate, right? OK. True confessions time: I am an ex-Uppie.

Let's play a little game of word association. I'll say a phrase, and you say the first thing that pops into your mind. Ready? "Up With People." Chances are your first response was a blank stare, followed by a faint smile as you remember your grade-school choir days. Wait, it's all coming back now. Face scrubbed, hair slicked back, you belted out that cheery refrain: "Up, up with people. You meet 'em wherever you go. Up, up with people. They're the best kind of folks we know.

When I first heard about Personhood USA, I got it confused with Up with People, the organization best known for song-and-dance troupes that go around the world singing songs like "Which Way America?" and "What Color Is God's Skin?" When I realized it was actually an anti-abortion group devoted to the idea that any fertilized human egg should be considered a person, I still couldn't shake the image of wholesome young performers spreading fetus love across the globe. Instead of singing about peace and "dances through the ages" they could sing about zygotes and implantation, though admittedly those lyrics might be tough to rhyme.
