Sponsors | From coast to coast, $65 in gifts

Over the past 24 hours, I've received $10 from Minnesota; $20 from Florida; $25 from Delaware with this note: "Congratulations on your award Jim! I wish this could be much more. Thanks for your hard work on our behalf. I, for one, truly appreciate it."

And, finally, I got another $10 from Arizona with this: "Congratulations on the award. I've been meaning to make this donation for awhile now, but the $50 you just got was the reminder I needed. Just say it's 'from someone on the ninth floor of The Arizona Republic.'"

With just three weeks remaining in the quarter, I'm now at just 56% of my goal. I've got a long way to go, but I like a challenge. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $589
  • Advertising: $1,654
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the PayPal "Donate" tool in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash and checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.

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."
