Yes, I know those aren’t real words. My mother used them to describe something that was truly awful, and that’s what came to mind when I considered the news of the week (both foreign and domestic) and the prospect of discussing it on tomorrow’s podcast. Then it occurred to me that the perfect (and perhaps only) way to survive this week’s news is to intellectualize it — to analyze the whole mess in terms of its root cause: altruism. So that’s what we’ll do, tomorrow at 5 p.m. PST. Sign up if you’d like to join in live and contribute your two cents (now inflated to $5 thanks to the debt deal).
UPDATE: I just noticed that GoToWebinar was doing something totally unprecedented : asking you to give me your mailing address just to register to attend my live webcast. I have fixed it, so now all you need is name and e-mail address to register (and no, I will not spam you with e-mail, either). Sorry, not sure how that happened!
