Sitting Donkey
The Tired Donkey blogs about cocktails, ways to get the most out of your Mac at home, work, college . . . wherever. He used to write about the unending abuse suffered by the 51% of Americans who actually pay the federal income tax. But this became too depressing, and, frankly, no one wanted to read it.

Nevertheless, if you came here looking for the Tired Donkey's brilliant analysis of our dim-witted tax system, you can still find his earlier posts. Just check the archives or the

Friedman

Weekend Reading (and Watching)

vonnegut
Reading: The Tired Donkey likes Kurt Vonnegut; his 1961 short story, “Harrison Bergeron,” is relevant to our inquiry here, and the Tired Donkey recommends that you take a few minutes to read it this weekend. You can disagree with this if you want, but the Tired Donkey believes you will not find a better use for your time. You can find the full text here.


Watching: A loyal Tired Donkey reader provided the Tired Donkey with a link to this short video; it contains some words of great wisdom from Milton Friedman. It is also a reminder of a time when television was still capable of providing a forum for civil discourse. And the Tired Donkey digs Milton’s groovy pink sportcoat. Watch it.



Off Topic:
Christopher Neimann’s art essay “My Life With Cables” will resonate with anyone who owns a computer, and—from the archives—zefrank’s immortal “Earth Sandwich” post. More on Monday.
