I have to put on my yellow waders and go through the Democratic Victory Task Force report (here), since a kind reader sent me a copy, and so this thank you note will be briefer than your generosity warrants.
You helped me meet the $2500 goal with dispatch; I left my desk, and when I returned, the job was done! And much sooner than I expected! In fact, when the checks are counted, and the contributions that went to Yves’s account are added in, you will have beaten the goal quite comfortably; I count $3300 (!!) now. So, no angst for Lambert over the fuel bill this year. You have no idea how much I appreciate that.
And I guess this result means that I should continue with Water Cooler. That’s nice!
Thank you again!
I’m sorry for the difficulties some of you had with PayPal; I have no idea what I did to fix the contribution at $25, and I was reluctant to make changes to PayPal in midstream. And I know the hat is too small; I’ll try to remedy that in the near future.
PS One donor used this fundraiser as an excuse to send a VERY large donation to Yves as well as a separate one for me. So don’t let the end of my fundraiser stand in the way of contributions to the Tip Jar, particularly for all the intense coverage on Greece. She also thanks you for your readership and your generous support of this fundraiser.
