As a California resident, I, along with my remaining golden staters, got summarily kicked to the curb yesterday by the Amazon Affiliate program. I don’t blame Amazon for this. California is broke and trying to collect more taxes, which may or may not work. To be perfectly honest, I never felt comfortable asking readers to buy stuff through my link. We all have too much stuff. Turning off the Amazon page feels like removing some karmotional baggage so adios Amazon.
