O&A – the battle begins

I’ve made the switch to XM, and it’s great to have Opie and Anthony back. Their material is so far beyond what Stern is doing that I harbor some doubts that I’ll ever listen to him again. Now that O&A no longer work for Stern’s company, they can actually talk about him (Stern had requested a gag order so they couldn’t mention his name back when they both worked for the same parent company).

O&A were talking about this, and how there may be more to come. That would be great.

What I Like about Scrooge

A pretty neat article on Slate, contributed by the one and only Womanofthelaw.

In this whole world, there is nobody more generous than the miser—the man who could deplete the world’s resources but chooses not to. The only difference between miserliness and philanthropy is that the philanthropist serves a favored few while the miser spreads his largess far and wide.

If you build a house and refuse to buy a house, the rest of the world is one house richer. If you earn a dollar and refuse to spend a dollar, the rest of the world is one dollar richer—because you produced a dollar’s worth of goods and didn’t consume them.
