Sponsors | This just in: $170 in donations

I'm very happy to acknowledge reader gifts via snail-mail and PayPal from Florida ($5), Arizona ($50), Delaware ($20), Mississippi ($25), Ohio ($40), New Jersey ($5) -- plus $25 from readers who didn't say where they live.

With advertising, those donations bring me to 34% of my quarterly goal. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $439
  • Advertising: $934
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.


  1. Congrats, Jim, you are right on target for the quarter. This is the BEST retort we could all give the trolls.

    Did Jim make you laugh? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim make you cry? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim piss you off? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim get you so mad you broke a tooth? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim comfort you? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim make you upset? Give him 5 bucks.

    Fed up with his pleading? Give him 5 bucks.

    Did Jim get Dubow to call names? Give him 5 bucks.

    Fed up with the trolls? Give him 5 bucks.

    In fact, the trolls should share the 5 bucks they get.

    Please support my work

    I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly from advertising and donations of $5 per reader. So far this quarter, which ends Sept. 30, I've received $439 in donations.
