I Pity The Poor Billionaire

"The Value of a Textbook", Monday in IHE, is typical "capitalism is doing everybody a big fat favor by ripping us off; bend over and take it like a man" asssume-everybody-is-a-moron boilerplate uselessness ... but wait! There are some interesting comments, including one by Grover Furr referring to this thread from last year wherein he explains why textbooks should be free (there are other good comments there, too). All of which gives me a quasi-plausible excuse to link to this ancient letter to the editor by me (shrink the window). Oh, gee.

Here's a related post from my math-ed blog.
