It's time to shake my tin cup again and ask you to help me stay in business as a writer.
I believe I provide good value.
In fact, I think I'm getting funnier as I get older. I'm not exactly sure why that is. When I look at my family budget, I can't imagine what's so funny. Perhaps, though, the world is just moving in the directions I've always figured it would, leaving me with a certain gleefulness.
While I'm tooting my own horn, I want to call attention to my book reviewing. I believe I've emerged in this current decade as the best reviewer of serious (but not scholarly -- i.e., public intellectual) nonfiction in the country. At least, that is, in what I see as the most important element in reviewing public intellectuals' books: debugging a long argument and pointing out where the author's logic goes off track. (Here are some of the books I've reviewed in 2011, and keep an eye out for my review of Francis Fukuyama's new magnum opus in the next issue of The American Conservative.)
You can send me an email and I'll send you my P.O. Box address.
Or, you can use Paypal to send me money directly. Use any credit card or your Paypal account. To get started, just click on the orange Paypal "Donate" button on the top of the column to the right.
When that takes you to Paypal, if you want to use your Paypal account, fill in your Paypal ID and password on the lower right of the screen.
Or, if you want to use your credit card, fill in your credit card info on the lower left part of the screen by clicking on the word "Continue" in the lower center/left.
Thanks. I appreciate it, profoundly.
