Two notes from Blue Avocado:

- Don't forget that the biggest discount of all is that you get Blue Avocado in your Inbox every three weeks absolutely free. As you know, we work on the public TV model: free to view but you have to endure a few pledge breaks (like this one) now and again. Donate and become a Blue Avocado member here. Thanks to our 200+ donors! — Jan Masaoka & the Blue Avocado Steering Committee
