  •  Fair enough, but Neil donated the money to charity (0+ / 0-)

    It went to a sexual abuse charity and to a library charity. Can you think of another cultural use of that money would have both A) gotten an A list writer in to do a talk that was also broadcast and enjoyed by thousands and B) rolled that money straight back into other worthy causes including more funding for libraries? Because I'm thinking that's tough to beat. Also, 33,600, not 45,000

    •  I am not faulting Gaiman (0+ / 0-)

      My criticism is towards whoever thought it was a good use of public money to hire a speaker who made it a point to overcharge on speaking fees in order to discourage people from asking him to speak.
