GARY FARBER PLEDGE DRIVE WEEK....While he's waiting (and waiting) to see if the feds are willing to cut him a break, Gary Farber is holding a fundraising drive in order to pay his rent this month. Head on over to his place if you have a few bucks to help out. You'll also be treated to perhaps the longest fundraising post in the history of the internets. It's something you'll be able to tell your kids about.

Crap. I'd have realized I should have made it shorter if I'd not procrastinated until the last minute in writing it.

Or, as previously said: I'd have made it shorter, if I'd had more time.

But I like to think that I can write a bit more clearly and smoothly when my life is a bit less, um, uncertain.

Thanks, Kevin.

Huh. I only just noticed that this blog is apparently running on East Coast time for its timestamps. Seems odd, given Kevin living in California, but I suppose Washington Time rules, just as the East Coast rules us all in most ways, and rarely understands that anyone might not see that as perfectly delightful, observes this person who grew up in NYC.

God bless ya, Gary. Have you considered advertising on your blog? I know - it's a sell-out. But, if it puts food in your mouth, it's all good. I'll see if I can send you a few bucks. Peace out.

Who the hell is Gary Farber? And what has he done to deserve my hard earned $?

"And what has he done to deserve my hard earned $?"

Absofreaking nothing.

As I've said over and over again. Happy?

If you read the post Kevin linked, Gary says explicitly that he knows we don't owe him anything, but he could use a hand up right now. Maybe go check out his blog, which has been cranking out quality for over five years? Then, either throw a couple of bucks in the hat, or don't. Tell me, is "asshole" your default setting?

Gary Farber is just asking for a little help, his blog is great, he just needs a bit of help, and it's the modern world, we ask the internet for help when it's necessary. Jeez, MarkC, it's the holidays!

It seems odd not to use UTC or at least identify a timezone, this being the intertubes and all, but if they are going to silently adopt one timezone, what do you expect from the Washington Monthly?

what do you expect from the Washington Monthly?

I expect Washington State, but that comes from having grown up there. I never realized the state part needed to be specified until I went to school on the East Coast.
