Kick Start This

"Can't wait for the Kickstarter Kickstarter does for itself when it runs out of money."- Josh Belville

Now, I'm not sure the events of which caused Mr. Belville to tweet this quote, but I know when this feeling happened to me. Let me begin by saying that I am not against crowd funding campaigns. It can have very helpful uses, especially when it comes to the Arts. Need help to put on the Art show you've always wanted to do? Done. Need to raise money to buy instruments for a school or youth program to stay subsidized? You bet. Want to donate to help a local theater company continue to produce plays? Yep..

Doc Rivers is going to get fined by the league after his press conference tonight. That much I know for sure.
