There are a few hours of Hanukkah left! I think this link should still work: 3 months of just about every good magazine under the sun for a flat ten bucks. Or give it to yourself! Or get a head start on last-minute Christmas shopping.
Or give something else. I don’t care. Just don’t make the same embarrassing mistake the Koch brothers did — Koch Brothers Get Each Other Same Election For Christmas. (Thanks, Brian!)
How far we’ve come. Salt Lake City elects a gay mayor and it doesn’t even create a stir? (I’m just hearing about it now???) It was not that long ago that Utah shut down high school clubs statewide — all of them, including the chess club, the gardening club, and the Bible club — rather than allow a gay-straight club (as told in this wonderful 1998 documentary). That was big national news.
This is ridiculous and cheesy — who knows whether these “12 shocking celebrity net worths” are even accurate? — but, well (sheepishly) . . . it’s hard not to look.
