As I am a card-carrying member of the Shopping Socialist Pragmatist Party, it won't surprise anyone that I am on the record for endorsing, on principle, the exchange of cash for Salon Premium reading privileges. The Socialist part of me yearns for someone else to pay this fee, preferably an oil company executive or the Queen of England. But as usual, the Pragmatist in me knows that at the end of the day, none of the Rich Ninny Class will ante up. So I do. I can only encourage the rest of you to join the party.
