It has always struck me that Father's Day
is among the most difficult of holidays to buy for. For Mother's Day, the right gift always seems clear, doesn't it? Moms seem to enjoy getting flowers--although my mother preferred her new dog--but do dads really yearn for another fish tie? This year, instead of giving your father something to collect dust in the back of the closet, why not give him something he can use everyday? For every donation
of $25 or more to the Ashbrook Center made between now and the end of June, we will send dear-old-dad a No Left Turns mug
. Just make your donation online
, and we'll email you to see where you would like the mug delivered for dad (or, perhaps you want one for yourself). We'll also send a confirmation email to let your father know that you have a sense of Aristotelian liberality, and that the mug is on the way. And for those of you who strive to achieve the virtue of magnificence this Father's Day, for a $500 donation, I will personally take you and your father to lunch! So give your gift today
. After that, take a few minutes to peruse the wisdom of our Founding Fathers
in honor of Father's Day.
