Pat Sajak — not just a conservative, but a wit

Pat Sajak posts periodically at Ricochet.  I always look for his posts there because they’re not just right, they’re often very witty.  For example, check out his post regarding the fact that LA County managed to use $111 million stimulus dollars to save or create 55 jobs.  Even when he’s not just plain funny, Sajak’s worth reading, because he’s logical, clear and succinct, as with his post about the problems inherent in federal tax withholding.

I’m also impressed with the Ricochet financial model.  The site charges people, not to read the content, but to comment on the content.  I don’t know how well it works out, but it makes sense to me.  I suspect there are a lot of people out there who think their own words are more valuable than the original author’s.  That is, they might not see that it’s worth paying the author a red cent to say something, but they might feel that what they have to contribute is valuable enough that they will put money on the table to be heard.
