Mindspring censorship; abortion

Ego gratification. The illusion that someone is taking their opinion seriously. Look at some worst-case scenarios, some *real* vanity press outbursts -- Iacocca in "Iacocca," Al Dunlap strutting his stuff in "Mean Business," George Soros telling all in whatever-the-name-of-his-new-book-is. Who the hell takes this stuff at face value? Vanity, all is vanity.

But Carl, people who don't spend money just for the hell of it - bigtime pig capitalists - spend money on PR. Surely they get something for it. What?
