Colbert and Stewart Return!
Colbert is selling the portrait from his studio mantle, and he said on the show that last year's portrait sold on eBay for $50,000. The proceeds went to Save the Children. I wondered to myself: do you think the fact that the money goes to charity has any effect on memorabilia prices?
Compared with the totality of knowledge which is continually utilized in the evolution of a dynamic civilization, the difference between the knowledge that the wisest and that which the most ignorant individual can deliberately employ is comparatively insignificant. ~Fredrich Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty
