Who the hell is Jackie Lopez and what does she mean by “pay to play”?

Can we set up a time for a very brief call to go over our process for handling donations from donors who have given us pay to play letters? Want to make sure we have a robust process in place to make sure that donations that come in from those donors, in any form, get put into the operating account. Let me know when would be a good time for you all. Thanks, Jackie

The Victorian Demagogue: 19th Century Words on a Modern Day Danger

Efficient markets require trust, fairness, and cooperation among people who don’t know each other and may not see each other again. Without trust, markets break down.

Do Markets Make Us Fair, Trusting, and Cooperative, or Bring out the Worst in Us?

Microsoft sucks:


In 18th-century America, colonial society and Native American society sat side by side. The former was buddingly commercial; the latter was communal and tribal. As time went by, the settlers from Europe noticed something: No Indians were defecting to join colonial society, but many whites were defecting to live in the Native American one.

This struck them as strange. Colonial society was richer and more advanced. And yet people were voting with their feet the other way.

Maybe the nerds are just wonks:

    How the Mid-Victorians Worked, Ate and Died†

    Analysis of the mid-Victorian period in the U.K. reveals that life expectancy at age 5 was as good or better than exists today, and the incidence of degenerative disease was 10% of ours. Their levels of physical activity and hence calorific intakes were approximately twice ours. They had relatively little access to alcohol and tobacco; and due to their correspondingly high intake of fruits, whole grains, oily fish and vegetables, they consumed levels of micro- and phytonutrients at approximately ten times the levels considered normal today. This paper relates the nutritional status of the mid-Victorians to their freedom from degenerative disease; and extrapolates recommendations for the cost-effective improvement of public health today.
    Keywords: Public health, dietary shift, degenerative disease, Victorian
