It’s been a couple of years since this blog has run a “bleg” – asking for donations to defray some of the (minimal) cost of running the blog, and grab a few bucks for the (not minimal) time spent writing what you read here.
Fact is, I don’t need it that much. Business is, oddly, pretty good. Maybe next year.
But I would like you to take a moment to think about popping a few bucks in Gary Gross’ tip jar.
Gary writes Let Freedom Ring, and does some of the top-notchiest reporting there is, anywhere. He does for Central Minnesota what I wish blogging and talk radio paid well enough for me to do in the Metro; he is the backbone of Central Minnesota’s regional conservative alternative media.
Unlike most of the regular leftybloggers, he does a ton of work; one of very few bloggers in the state more prolific than I am. Unlike virtually all of the more prolific leftybloggers, he doesn’t have George Soros or Alida Messinger paying his bills.
Now, Gary’s in a rough financial situation. The details aren’t that important, and I don’t even know many of them to be honest, but we’re not talking malfeasance, here; Gary is no MIchael Lohan or Charlie Sheen.
But he’s having to stretch things pretty far to keep his blog in production.
So if you can possibly spare a few bucks, this’ll be my bleg for the year; drop ’em by Gary’s Paypal donation page.
