Please excuse the familar tone, but I think we’re close enough now that I can speak frankly. While most of you no-count, self-obsessed modern types have been raising money for such frivilous causes as Tsunami Relief, or more importantly, keeping “EastEnders” on WLIW, spare a thought (or even better, a dime) for Yoni Cohen. He’s blogging his brains out about college hoops and said effort requires “hours” not “minutes” each day. Are you gonna pay up or do I have to beat it out of you?

And please, by no means should anyone consider sending cash to CSTB, because I promise it will go straight up my nose. Homeopathic nasal spray doesn’t grow on trees.
