#grabyourwallet

Here’s a new website for the discriminating shopper: #grabyourwallet.org. With URLs for contact forms and telephone numbers for corporate headquarters.

See also: Pagan Kennedy’s “How to Destroy the Business Model of Breitbart and Fake News” (The New York Times).

Calling Amazon’s corporate number (206-266-1000) got me nothing but a maze of recorded messages. It might be better to call customer service (888-280-4331).

Did you know that Amazon advertises on Breitbart? (I can’t call it ”Breitbart News.”)

I keep defaulting to my book review of Explaining Hitler — to me, an evil man is easy to explain. What's truly hard are the millions of people who support what most would see as evil deeds.

Yes, that’s an odd omission. (PK, by the way, is a woman.)

About the millions: maybe that’s where the “seriously, not literally” rationalizing comes in.

I don't follow.

Peter Thiel says that Trump’s supporters take him seriously, not literally.
