Sports Illustrated Endorses Peter Singer

by Joe Miller

Okay, so the magazine doesn't really endorse Peter Singer. I doubt that Rick Reilly has the faintest idea who Singer is. But he does nicely channel Singer's utilitarian argument for famine relief. Reilly's target, however, isn't famine relief but malaria relief. Check it out here. Then click on over here and donate your $20 to by mosquito nets for kids in Africa. Private charity at work. Even an anarchist can dig it.

I'm really looking forward to this summer. I'm actually going to have money that I will feel comfortable giving to charity! Car payments and whatnot. I am going to have to consider the upcoming nightmare... er, dreamland that is application to graduate school, the moving process, et cetera.

/me wrings sweaty palms thinking about graduate school.

BTW, I just pulled up news.google.com and look what I had staring me in the face:

I doubt that link will work, given blogspot's proclivity to ignore the sorts of things real people do on the internet... like hyperlinking. Just copy n paste it.
