Time is Money...

...and money is the root of all evil. Does that mean time is the root of all evil?

Actually, I think aphorisms are the root of all evil in our governance-by-bumper-sticker society.

At any rate, I'm in search of information. Does anybody have a sense of how much a senior writer at the New Yorker or the Atlantic or a similar publication is paid for a full-length nonfiction article? (I'm thinking of someone like a Susan Orlean or Larissa MacFarquhar.)

I believe I've seen interviews that put that figure at about $20,000. I think they pay maybe $2 a word or so.

As for your first question: it's kind of like "God is Love, love is blind, Ray Charles is blind, therefore..."

As in most things Wilde said it best..."Lack of money is the root of all evil."
