Save Ferris Frontburner

D Magazine’s blog, The Frontburner, is selling sponsorships to pay for a new server and to justify the editorial time-suck to the businessfolk.  The Frontburner: a.) is a snarky celebration of ignorance; b.) is one of many early inspirations for Pegasus News; c.) gives us regular props/traffic and; d.) is the only blog that is good enough for me to bother to read even though it only posts intros in its RSS feed.

I thought, briefly, about becoming a Frontburner sponsor, but cash is just to dear for us to do any advertising right now. So, I’ll do what I can and urge our local readers to kick in for The Frontburner crew.

(And yes, I know I’ve gotten entirely too fond of strikethrough font lately. I’ll get over it soon eventually.)
