Imagine a blog from the Titanic entitled, "Tips on Maximizing Tips." The blog, by a cabin boy, would provide up to the minute insights on how to cultivate big tips from first class passengers. Sometimes I feel like that blogging about philanthropy in 2008. I want to say on topic (philanthropy), but keep going off on tangents about complacency, social class, criminality, hubris, moral health, satire, and icebergs. Forgive me.
