Sponsors | This just in: $95 in new donations

They included $20 from New Jersey, $25 from Virginia and, from Michigan, a gift that included this note: "It's been a little while since I last contributed so here's another $50 to keep your reporting going, Jim."

With advertising sales, that brings me to 80% of my quarterly goal. But there are only six days left! The breakdown so far:
  • Reader donations: $956 
  • Advertising: $2,243 
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. Seems like your ad revenue has slowly, but surely been increasing every quarter, Jim.
    Too bad it's just the opposite for the USCP's websites.

  2. Beggar Hopkins.

  3. Go Jim. You make boomers like me proud!

  4. I would donate but I have emailed you two times with very simple request and have been ignored both times. Poor customer service.

  5. Great post, 2:08. I also have e-mailed Jim about a few issues, and I have received only one response.

    He should have plenty of time to handle these things. Thus, no $.

  6. 2:08 I apologize if I didn't follow up. Please e-mail again; mention this comment, and I'll do my best to handle your request.

  7. Oh, for cryin' out loud, Jim does a great job and is not "Ask Jeeves." Just contribute $5 already.

  8. 4:56, how about if YOU donate your money and avoid telling us what to do?

  9. 4:56 I already contributed $20 this quarter. Please don't respond.


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."
