Interesting article in the Freakonomics blog today about tipping practices, and what data tells us.

"A cross-tab of the raw data shows that white customers tipped black servers almost four percentage points less than white servers and that black customers tipped black servers half a percentage point less."

(btw, the article starts out with taxi tipping and moves on to talk about restaurant tipping)

Do you think you tip fairly?
