Beggin’. Braggin’. For Real.


Like the new look? The one specially designed to make money? There will be a few more fixes in the days to come – and is accepting ads of most shapes and sizes – so don’t be shy, send us a little cash. Critiques and comments, too.

If you’re a regular reader, more than once a week, you might want to think about a larger contribution, say $75. And if you’re a political junkie, consultant, elected official, or anyone whose job involves getting people to vote, you have two choices, both good. You should buy an ad (email for details) or make a regular sustaining contribution. We’re not proud, we’ll bill you.
I’m going to copy a page from PBS and blogger extraordinaire Andrew Sullivan and dedicate this week to raising money. So we’ll be back in a day or so reminding you that PayPal accepts all kinds of credit cards and that we’re more than happy to talk with you about ad specifications.
