Indeed. And Howie the Whore -- not to insult whores -- isn't the only one.

Read the whole thing until the end, where you come to the words "sustainable model," because -- not to put too fine a point it -- we're experimenting with that very thing at Corrente.

And it is an experiment.

yesterday. But alas, I have a day job. I have blog post started about Silverstein leaving Harper's (my favorite magazine), but work intervened, So I'm glad you posted this. Glenn Greenwald alerted me to this. Here is my favorite quote of the article,
