Years ago I signed an online petition urging Fox to release The Tick (the animated series) on DVD. Today I’ve got the DVD in my hand. Spoon! Who says economists won’t help produce public goods?

To be honest, I doubt the petition helped. I was just feeling quixotic. Everything else I’ve wanted someone to release on DVD has long since appeared without the help of my virtual signature on a petition. It’s nice to live in a world where greed so reliably delivers the goods.
