Not for me, but for Arthur Silber. In a fair and just universe, Arthur would have a lucrative book deal and we'd be reading his latest best-seller, or catching his latest interview on a talk show. Instead, he barely scrapes by. I will contend that there are very few bloggers (or columnists for that matter) who write consistently thought-provoking essays - the sorts of words that defy the reader to challenge and rethink deeply-held assumptions. I for one sleep better knowing he's around, turning our empire's sacred cows to hamburger. I know a few of my five readers are familiar with Arthur's work. If you have some change to spare, send some his way. Thanks.
