Condescension done right


I believe it was Neal Stephenson who once opined:

“Anyone can condescend you, but it takes a Unix user to do it right”

Well, in a similar vein I will stake:

“Anyone can be sanctimonious, but it takes a Public Broadcasting Service member to do it right.”

After years of shamefully leeching off the backs of other good residents of the area’s donations I righted myself with Host and Humanity by joining KQED.

I even got a nifty bumper sticker.

Now when I drive my righteous ass up and down the highways I can make all those other leeches in their leech-mobiles remember their leechy place in society. Scum.
