Sponsors | By snail mail, $25 in contributions

I just received $20 from a frequent contributor in Ohio who told me I needn't acknowledge it with an official Gannett Blog thank you card: "I already know you appreciate my donation." I sure do!

I also got $5 from a reader who didn't provide a return address. "A helluva job reporting on the $37M payoff for Dubow," they said in an enclosed note. "The irony of our contribution of $5 to support your unearthing these numbers is not lost on me, but it's all we can afford right now. You have our prayers and thanks as well."

No contribution is too small. With these donations, I'm now at 22% of my quarterly goal. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $272
  • Advertising: $620
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. To pay by credit card or PayPal, 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.
