Sponsors | In the closing hours: $65 in new gifts

Via snail mail, I received $5 from Wisconsin; $20 from Arizona, and $20 from a reader who didn't provide a location. And by PayPal, I just got $20 from a reader in Virginia.

As the quarter ends today, these donations bring me to 98% of my quarterly goal. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $1,457
  • Advertising: $2,477
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. Round it off Jim, and you too could be a 99%-er like the rest of us!

  2. How much matching funds did you earn?

  3. A generous Alabama reader matched $200 in contributions from other readers for a total of $400.

  4. Beggar Hopkins!
