Hall of Fame

In our Hall of Shame, one can read about the few people confoundingly siding with fascism, cynicism, depravity, and murder. I don’t understand it and I think most reasonable people are equally perplexed.

But I am happy to report that countering that shameful behavior are many, many more people, heroes, really, who have sacrificed, in some cases, their very lives to ensure that evil will not prevail.


Whitney Tilson

When I first met Whitney Tilson in New York City, I could tell that this man was a force of nature. I wasn't wrong. To date, he and his partner TAPS have raised over $15 million for Ukraine to bring in mobile ambulances, generators, and drones.

As I write this, he's in Ukraine right now, and like so many freedom lovers, he's risking his life for a country to which he has no physical connection. Unlike those who campaign for Russia (tyranny) and against Ukraine (freedom), enveloped in the safety and security of a free-speech democracy of which they did nothing to earn, Whitney regularly visits nearly destroyed, almost abandoned villages near the front line because it's the right (and brave) thing to do.

Check out Whitney's YouTube Page to see what courage looks like.
