shameless commerce

It's true. I want you to buy things from me. I want to sell you t-shirts and bumper stickers and coffee mugs.

Why?

Not for the money (although lord knows, money almost never hurts anyone, unless you pull it out from under a precariously balanced school bus full of summer school kids)

For the approval. Because you hit "purchase" and I think "People actually agree with me." "People value what I have to say." "People want to dress like Madonna."

Whatever.

It's shallow. But it's still important. Like Angelina Jolie and George Bush and podcasting.
