Just read this by Roy Edroso. I value Roy’s writing immensely, and you probably do too (and if you don’t, chances are it’s only because you’re not familiar with him yet). Anyway one of Roy’s friends is conducting an Edrosothon, and you are all strongly encouraged to donate. For those who don’t bother to click thru on links (which is entirely understandable, given how many links are thrown at you every time you turn on the computing machine), please note that this isn’t just your standard “blogger wants to score some bucks” fundraiser — Roy’s apparently had a run of luck, with not so much of the good kind, and could seriously use a hand here. And if he’s too proud to ask for it himself, then fuck him — send him some scratch anyway, in spite of his crotchety old self.
