We had just under 25,000 unique visitors to The BRAD BLOG yesterday. Without combing the records too deeply, I do believe that was a daily record for unique visits. It was a busy day.

And yet, out of those 25,000 visitors who immensely enjoyed The BRAD BLOG, only one of them made a donation. And that was a good day! :-)

Which either means I'm doing a lousy job at blogging, or a lousy job at letting folks know that your support here means everything. Especially now.

As this little habit of mine has become a 24/7/365 pursuit in the last several months, the imperative to toss out the occasional humiliating plea for your support becomes more and more necessary if I'm to have a chance of staying on the job and continuing to fight the evil-doers.

So thank you to all of you who have supported us with a donation of late! And to the others, feel free to cancel cable TV for a month, read The BRAD BLOG instead, and send at least half of your savings here!

You'll be more entertained, have a few more dollars in your pocket, become much better educated, and you won't go to bed at night feeling quite as dirty!

(Have a business or blog of your own that may benefit from reaching the many loyal BRAD BLOG readers? Consider buying a BlogAd! You can get a reasonably priced Premium ad by clicking here, or get The BRAD BLOG Top Spot by clicking here!

And seriously, if this is not your blog of choice, please consider donating to any other blogger or alternative media site whose work you appreciate. Almost all of us take donations these days. And we need it!

In case you haven't noticed, our work is becoming increasingly more important and influential in helping to set the national agenda and take back the media! But to continue do that, we need to be able to make at least part of a living along the way.

Please help to make that possible by giving whatever and whenever you can.

Your grandchildren may thank you some day. I'll thank you today.
