counter argument to one line in the poem "eh is right" which is below this post right now but may not be in the future

Thanks to Brian Foley's sharp eyes, here is a terrific NY Times profile on Lewis Hyde, author of The Gift. I wrote a post about the idea of a "gift economy" for HTMLGIANT. It makes me sound like a real person, or at least a public intellectual.

And anyway, "gift economy" getting a bad rap in the poem is just because the poem is about the idea of "two people," and sometimes pairs really hate crowds.
