Re: “The Militant Baker Wants Your Help to Do Body Love Advocacy Full-Time

Do you deride artists or musicians for being supported by the people that appreciate them? It's a similar situation here, only Baker's work shows through in advocacy and ideas rather than a piano or canvas.

The fact of the matter is, in today's freelance economy, the opportunities to secure funding through non-traditional means (anything that isn't suffering trough the 9-to-5) are everywhere, if one tries hard enough to find them. You don't dig that, sure. But doesn't it seem a bit silly to begrudge someone for the way they get paid simply because their bosses aren't anything like your own?

(Also, try SwiftKey. You'll wonder how you ever used a touchscreen keyboard without it.)

Re: “The Militant Baker Wants Your Help to Do Body Love Advocacy Full-Time

The thing about Patreon is that it is something more similar to a patronage system (hence the similarity in the name), in that supporters offer money in exchange for the work of the artist/writer/activist. It's more in the vein of Kickstarter and IndieGoGo than begging on the street while wearing a sandwich board.

Re: “Let's Learn More about Medical Marijuana Tomorrow

Mike, while I haven't poked around in the newsletter settings, I'm sure that someone behind the scenes could wrangle an exception for you that would drop a newsletter into your inbox immediately after each and every post goes up.

Re: “Graze Premium Burgers Opens Today

Well, Sriracha is the Rajon Rondo of condiments: It's good on its own, but it absolutely elevates the game of everything around it.

Re: “Air Sex World Championships at Hotel Congress Tonight

Fraser, Henry is keeping up a long, strong tradition of dick jokes on The Range.

Surely you can take a more flexible position on Henry's hard work, right?
