It’s no secret. I like fountain pens.

If I had the wherewithal I’d have a few more than I do.

A fountain pen is jewelry in a way, only it does more than peek out of your pocket at the curious, or pique the attention of someone who watches you sign something. A guy can write with a fountain pen. The ink flows as fast as you can think.

But I’m afraid this one is over the top. This is opulence.

$20,000.00 –   for a pen, even if it is solid gold, in a world where people are starving, where people in our country are looking for work they can’t find, where missionaries are coming home because support levels have dropped …  Sorry.
No sale.

If I had the money I’d put it to a different —I’d like to think better— use.
