Sponsors | Wow: I've just received $140

That's two $20 donations from readers in Mississippi and Ohio; two $25 donations from readers in Michigan and Minnesota, and $50 from a fifth reader in Alabama. Together, they bring me to within 86% of my quarterly goal. With just two weeks remaining, here's the breakdown so far:
  • Reader donations: $1,204
  • Advertising: $2,223
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the "Donate" tool in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash/checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.


  1. I received one of the gifts by snail-mail from a reader who wished to remain anonymous. They wrote: "I feel guilty doing this, as we still work for Gannett. Not a big job, but work.''

    To that person, I say: Thank you for giving under the circumstances. I very much appreciate your generosity.

  2. Any way to give you a donation and get Gannett to match it?

  3. 4:09 The Gannett Foundation only gives to non-profits. Although I make relatively little money, I'm not there yet!


Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
