Evidently, Peter David, AKA: PAD, was stuck with a huge tax bill, because he went through a divorce wherein he lost the money set aside to appease the IRS.

You can read his plea here on his blog: http://www.peterdavid.net/2017/03/31/i-am-...perate-trouble/

Interesting note: He never says the words "please" or "thank(s)".

Do you want to get something for the money? Fine: Send a check to my PO Box along with books of mine and a SASE and I’ll sign them and send them back. That’s something, I guess.


Wow.

Lol sucks for him, but wow that was an entitled plea for money. I don't even know if plea is the right word, more like kindly worded demand.

I was going to say something snarky because of the "you may as well hand the money over to me" tone of his post, but I'm not going to.

there's nothing inherently embarassing with hitting a rough patch and asking for help.

I'm just happy it happens to someone who deserves it one more reason to party tonight.

I guess I just meant there's better ways to leverage your (moderate) level of fame, than asking for $10 straight up. Fans had to tell him "maybe doing autographs is better". And it's true, it comes off far less as someone who lives a better lifestyle asking we peons for our money and more "hey bargain autographs, I got into some shit".

I guess it has less to do with him asking for handouts, and more him being a presumably lower-upper class person who lives a good lifestyle asking for handouts from his fanbase, which is probably a large percent non-upper class and doesn't live like he does.
