Needs Your Help to Keep Going

We're $7,000 $1,000 Short!

Okay, so we averted disaster – bu6t we aren't out of the woods yet.

We're still $7,000 $1,000 short of our goal – and if we don't make it, we'll have to make a few cutbacks that are going to make life pretty grim around here, to be sure.

There's no frills in this operation: the deficit will mean that the present staff will have to work its fingers to the bone and beyond, without the part-time help that took some of the workload off the shoulders of a few. Unless, that is, you – our faithful readers and supporters – come through for us.

So, c'mon, all you people out there: just dig a little deeper and send a contribution our way. It's 100% tax-deductible. And it's for a good cause.

Make your 100% tax-deductible contribution today.

As of Saturday night, 974 of you gave $53,105 toward the $60,000 needed to keep running for the next quarter. We are close to our goal, please help.
