Do I have to have iTunes running to charge my iPod Touch? I mean, can't I just turn on my computer and have the USB port just charge the silly thing? All my other devices work like that; why does Apple have to be such a prima-donna?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
You pretty much self-answered the question but, in any case and for future reference:
You don’t need iTunes to charge iPhones/Pads/Pods. iPhones come with a wall-pluggable charger that also happens to charge the other members of the family.
