    Special kudos to anonymous - the Green Hornet of the Polar Plunge! The Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides would approve http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Judaism/Levels_of_Giving.html


  2. - Levi - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 3:37 pm:

    You’d better just stick in a toe and be done with it. The weather is going to be terrible!


  3. - tw - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 3:39 pm:

    As I said in my comments, I’ll double my donation if you stay down


  4. - wowsers - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 4:02 pm:

    I say everyone volunteers to double their donations if someone gets a picture of Rich fully in the water


  5. - Anonymiss - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 4:17 pm:

    >my new column editor…

    Congrats, Rich!


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 4:24 pm:

    I was waiting for someone to break the seal…

    Congrats, Rich. Way to sneak it in!


  7. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 4:31 pm:

    Thanks.


  8. - The Captain - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 4:49 pm:

    So we all agree that “Corvax Louis is trying to kill you” is the early favorite for Best Commenter, right?


  9. - shore - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 5:40 pm:

    King Louis and soccer mom, great folks!


  10. - shore - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 5:49 pm:

    I haven’t been reading this as much lately because there hasn’t been the federal race interest but did I miss that you took your talents to crains?


  11. - Toure's Latte - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 8:04 pm:

    Proft: “A measly hundred and Miller will actually, finally, goes jump in a lake? I’m in!”


  12. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 9:39 pm:

    Congrats on the new gig, Rich.


  13. - mokenavince - Thursday, Feb 27, 14 @ 10:22 pm:

    Don’t forget your Speedo, for your picture with Rahm.


  14. - Nonplussed - Friday, Feb 28, 14 @ 8:09 am:

    Not to be snarky but shouldn’t Frerichs have donated $250?
