DAY TWO of the second annual spring donation-athon

by: Eric B.

Wed May 28, 2014 at 13:52:21 PM EDT

A huge thanks to everyone who gave some coin the first day of MichLib's annual spring donation-athon (that's what I'm calling it today ... check back tomorrow to see what new and madcap name I'm giving it). We hit the quarter mark of our donation goal, which sounds impressive until you consider how low I've set the bar for this ($500). Still, the support is appreciated. I also realize that a lot of people who follow the work here also go to the Mackinac conference, and were yesterday getting ready for it and are today travelling there (I know this because I follow lots of you on teh Twitters).

If you've got a little extra money, please consider dropping some of it into the tip jar embedded in this here post. Or, if history is a guide, you can also mail to me at 319 S. Oak St. Apt. A, Mt. Pleasant, MI, 48858 (Make checks out to Eric Baerren, try to refrain from drawing Sharpey moustaches on George Washington if you send cash).

What do you get from your contribution? Aside from knowing that you've brought a ray of happiness to my otherwise grim, humorless life ... well, you remember that thing that happened yesterday with the minimum wage? Remember how conservatives kept pointing to a CMO analysis of the minimum wage as evidence that it would doom us all, and remember how they stopped talking about it after someone pointed out that the analysis really said that raising the minimum wage would help thousands and thousands of people. That someone has a home somewhere near this website, I hear. Give a little money, and you help that feller out.
