In what persona or voice do we blog about giving as we await the Rapture? Albert is back, and has brought with him an impressively diverse team (in terms of race, class, gender of preference, politics and IQ) of collaborators. I strongly recommend that he adopt for himself the reasonable middle style of the well bred man. He should always take a position somewhere between those of, say, John Anger and those of Stuart Johnson (pictured to the left). That way Albert can avoid giving offense. Philanthropy is no masquerade any more than is business, politics, or the evening news. It is all strictly on the up and up. Let's keep it that way.
