Think you know when the war’s gonna start? Put your money where your mouth is. March To War has a pool; it’s five bucks to buy in. 20% of the pool goes to the player who comes closest in the form of prepaid gas cards; the rest goes to humanitarian activity in Iraq. The agency overseeing this is Boston Mobilization — just the kind of progressive activists the right wing loves to hate. But hey, they’re not planning on keeping the money, they’re planning on funnelling it to relief organizations.
I’m in for March 23rd, midnight Baghdad time. Alas, it’s presently Massachusetts-only.
