    What? You weren’t out helping the world’s poor by buying “fair-trade,” ethically-correct (voluntarily-taxed) consumables? You weren’t out “working with the oppressed” and feeling smug in your conspicuous compassion merely by indulging your most selfish materialistic fantasies? I’m disgusted.

  • To be honest, Gil, I hadn’t thought of it like that. But your comment really opened up my eyes. I’m disgusted with myself too. I feel an incredible sense of shame. Thanks for the reality check!

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
