DAY EIGHT and in the home stretch of our annual Give Until it Mildly Irritates You drive

I can now say with confidence that based on yesterday, that we've definitely exceeded last year's minor success are are probably very close to this year's goal of $500 in reader contributions. I can't say for certain because we're mostly a cashless society now and that weirds me out. Also, it's a sign of the End Times, and participating means taking the Mark of the Beast and eternal damnation. As you can see, it's heavy, heavy stuff not to be toyed with.

What I can do is extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who can contributed. It's helped tremendously pay off mounting bills. Might even get a haircut later today.

There's still a week left, and it would be great not just to meet our goal but to get as far past it as you're willing to help out. Tossing a little coin into the virtual tip jar is easy. There's an embedded link that appears to be working out nicely, and as always you can drop a check into the mail (made out to Eric Baerren) and sent to 319 S. Oak St. Apt. A, Mt. Pleasant, Mich, 48858.

So, today in what supporting this site means to you: Last year, a Detroit News columnist that around here was called Magic Frank penned a column laying out the argument that black people shouldn't be offended by jokes about fried chicken because it was produced in the furnace of innovation that was slavery. Normally, Magic Frank's ravings go overlooked because he's a bumbling ignoramus, but not this time. People took note of his column, and this site was one place that helped push it into general awareness, and a month after the column was published Magic Frank had a brand new nickname as Fried Chicken Frank and lots of free time on his hands after being forced out retiring as the voice of the University of Michigan football. Of course, a month after that he said that he was wrong to apologize because Fried Chicken Frank isn't just a bumbling ignoramus but also a raging asshole. But, whatever.
