In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Holiday Giving

Dear Blowhards --

I notice that a few of my favorite blogger/webpresences have put out the tin cup. Marginal Revolution, Steve Sailer, and Asymmetrical Information are all amazingly generous, brainy, and provocative. The info they supply and the thoughts they disgorge are big parts of why my brain buzzes more happily these days than it has in years. Years? Decades. I'm heading over to click on the Amazon Tip Jar at each place. Why not join me?

Hey, why shouldn't the big nonprofits be throwing a little money at bloggers? Talk about doing good work opening up the public mind. Hmm ... On the other hand, it's kinda great that we look after ourselves (and each other), isn't it?

Or even better - kill 2 mmm...targets with 1 purchase: as Megan suggested, you can buy your presents @Amazon thru window at Asymmetrical Info, she'll get commission.
Imagine, you're buying a book by one of your favorite bloggers to benefit another!
Not mentioning undying gratitude of the recipient.
