LAST DAY to give in our annual This Jerk will Keep Going Until We Give Him a Few Bucks campaign

This is it! If you've been meaning to toss a few dollars my way to keep this site up and going for the next year, this is your last chance (well, not really, but I've been led to believe that fund raising drives always have to be accompanied by dire, apocalyptic, time-sensitive threats to make them successful). This year was at least twice as successful as last year and beat this year's goal, but that doesn't mean we have to take the foot off the pedal until we've run out of gas ... which is tonight at midnight.

There's the embedded button and link to the Paypal page. You can also mail cash or checks (made out to Eric Baerren) to 319 S. Oak St. Apt. A, Mt. Pleasant, Mich. 48858. You can also set up a coin mortar in the apartment complex and shell me as I sit on the front porch ... just please launch enough to cover the emergency dental work).

For the last two weeks, I've been sharing success stories from this website to let you know what value it has. All of them have involved pushing the public dialogue on important issues or pressing the state's political media to do a better job. Today, I'd like to point to certain internal Democratic discussions that this website has helped promote. I won't go into particulars, because the focus of some of those conversations have been highly controversial. I will say that over the years I've appreciated the behind-the-scenes notes I've gotten from people that express dissent with the things I've said but thanking me nonetheless for pushing a conversation that people otherwise actively avoid. That gets done thanks in large part to supporting this website not through one or two major benefactors but by small donations by a number of people throughout the state. As we've seen with our political system, if something is supported by just a few people, those people's best interests tend to get over represented. When you toss a couple of bucks towards this website you help ensure the independence of this website's voice.
