No More Light of Reason?
Arthur's got some health problems, mounting financial debts, and may be facing eviction. And in his latest post - "Indefinite Leave" - appears to be packing it in.
I've only been reading his blog for about a month or two, on a recommendation from my friend, Lukery, from wotisitgood4, but it's definitely one of the better blogs in this buckless biz. Arthur's got a great voice, possesses amazing insight, and is an awesome digger.
From Deb's email:
Any one who wants to help Arthur Silber from The Light of Reason should direct their help through Crooks and Liars:
John Amato (C&L): I will collect the donations for Arthur. Use paypal or AMazon on my site and in the message put in " For Arthur" and I'll get it to him.
Anyway...I think some of my non-elitist-A-list-blog readers will appreciate this part of what might be Arthur's last post...cause it sounds kind of familiar:
"Some of the bloggers who make decent amounts of money through ads write what I will politely call swill. Sometimes it’s even vicious racist filth. And they make a living at it. I’ve offered something different. I won’t even call it “better.” Let’s simply say what I write is “different.”"
