Given Time, Water Can Erode Even the Hardest Stone

by Ron Hogan

A couple days ago, I noted an item about Amazon's support of the Republican party and when the Significant Other and I discussed it later that day, she decided her days of buying anything from them were pretty much over. (I hadn't bought anything from Amazon in about five years; even when I was an employee there, I made a point of buying my books from Seattle's fine independent bookstores whenever possible.) Now, Maud tells us she will stop linking to the megastore. I'm not one for rousing calls to action, but if you believe in knowing who benefits from the money you spend, I'd recommend taking a good look at Amazon's PAC contributions to the last election cycle and determining whether you want to support the company that supported that slate of candidates.
