While most everyone is talking politics or about the diversions that pose as politics, a friend sent me this link where author Harlan Ellison rightfully vents about the injustice of not paying writers. His rant makes a good point about writers who give their words away for free. I admit to being guilty of this crime, if the occasion deems it necessary. And sometimes it does. This post counts as one of those occasions. Hey, with the plethora of Palin, I'll write it off as a gift.
