Sure, bloggers ought to know better. Actually, what got my goat was the 'public figures' part. Is Pledgebank actually a club for a self-selecting elite? How are we to know if we're 'public figures' or not?
In the absence of a definition, and to make a point, I've decided that I am also a public figure. And if the pledge makes it to its target, I'll do my bit to support a sports club, being fairly physically active myself. That's if they want me, obviously.
Tony didn't have to pick something elitist, of course. How about 'cycling to work' or 'not taking foreign holidays that involve air travel'?Charlie Whitaker, 12 years ago.
