Sponsors| A sudden embarrassment of riches

One of my most generous donors, a reader in Alabama, made a $100 donation only two days ago. Tonight, noticing I was so close to my quarterly goal, that same reader gave me another $125. Combined with advertising sales and a $5 contribution from a Nebraska reader, I've now surpassed my goal.

Thank you all, very much! With just a day left in the quarter -- and the year! -- I've now taken in $4,013. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $1,505
  • Advertising: $4,013
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the "Donate" or "Subscribe" tools 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 and job well done, Jim. When my financial situation improves, mine will be on the way.

  2. It's gonna be a rough 2012 and we appreciate you being there to help all of us make sense of things, share info, and vent a little. Thank you.
