State Farm drops Heartland

In an encouraging development, State Farm gets the memo (link goes to SF’s Facebook page) and drops funding for the Heartland Institute in the wake of their astoundingly and foolishly revealing Unabomber billboard campaign.

This is an unforced error on Heartland’s part, of course. But consider that, had Peter Gleick not revealed the contributors to the group, the pressure on State Farm would never have materialized and the contribution of State Farm to those ignorant, self-serving fools would never have been challenged.
