Well folks, our fundraiser just got serious. Paddy now has major problems with her dinosaur computer. She needs a new one.
Please note: Without Paddy, the number of posts here at TPC would be cut in half. I'm only here from 9-6 PT, and Paddy (Eastern Time) covers all the early breaking news that I see way after most of you do. So we have to cover the costs of a new computer for her, STAT.
If we somehow brighten your day, educate or even irritate you at times, please consider a donation, big or small, to keep us bumping along. If everyone who dropped by on a daily basis dropped a coin in the bucket, we'd be done in no time.
If you'd like a snail mail address, email us at paddy at thepoliticalcarnival dot net. Thank you.
