An item from a reader on Rick Marin, the author of Cad: Confessions of a Toxic Bachelor: "Rick Marin does throw a great Canada Day party, it's true, but it looks like the "double dipping" dilemma has spread beyond his tostitos. I wonder what "The Ethicist" would say? Maybe it's fine to beseech your friends to help your ratings and buy your new book online, but can it be totally kosher to omit that the helpfully provided link also sends an amazon referral kickback your way?" Not that terribly scandalous, but I thought the ULA kids might find it distressing, so I'm posting it anyway.
