DAY THREE of Eric B. groveling before the readers of MichLib for cash

by: Eric B.

Thu May 29, 2014 at 14:00:00 PM EDT

Always liked the word, "groveling." It adds an extra whiff of degradation that you just don't get with the word, "beg." A big thanks to everyone who ponied up a little bit of cash yesterday. I can report that the 40 percent of goal benchmark has been reached. It would be even better if I could report that we had exceeded the goal, but life is full of little and sometimes bitter disappointments.

Giving is pretty simple. Click on the button embedded in the post, which will take you to a Paypal donation page. Or you can mail it to me at: 319 S. Oak St. Apt. A, Mt. Pleasant, Mich., 48858 (make checks out to Eric Baerren). Or, if you live in the greater Mount Pleasant metropolitan area, you can drive past my home, slow your car, and hurl it at me while I sit on the front porch (I can also come to your home or place of employment ... I promise that I'll shower and try to find clean clothes so as not to cause too much embarrassment). Remember, as always, meat -- especially the sort of meat that can be grilled -- is a legitimate form of currency.

So what do you get out of pitching a little coin into the tip jar? Well, you know the stuff that appears here has an impact, even if a small and subtle one. This was the first place that started airing complaints about the costs associated with Michigan's finest legal mind defending our same sex marriage ban. Actually, I did that last summer in a column I wrote for MLive. Think I probably complained about it here around that time, too. At any rate, eventually that picked up steam and Michigan's finest legal mind was forced to explain how much he'd spent on expert witnesses, and the more time and energy he spends defending it, it will continue to be a question that gets asked.
