Hi, friends of The Political Carnival!

We are rebuilding this page due to Paddy's sad, way-too-early passing.

It will be back up in a few days.
Note: Paddy Kraska passed away on January 16, 2014 in her sleep at home in Mishawaka, Indiana. You can learn more about her from this video:

If you would like to do this, please send whatever you can to me, Lucian Dixon (webmaster for The Political Carnival) at Please be sure to mark the donation simply as 'Paddy' or 'Donations for Paddy' so that I know where they're from.

When I wrote the 'sticky' post about Paddy's death and funeral expenses last week, there was something just too strange about putting a PayPal button to help defray the costs of Paddy's funeral in the middle of the post but many people have requested one to simplify the process, so here it is:

If you'd prefer to send a check, please send it to me at 819 Oakwood St., #11, Jackson, MS 39202.  If you'd like for me to call you, please send me an email with your number and I will get back to you.


In the meantime, if you wish to help us out at The Political Carnival, please send your donations to me, Lucian Dixon, TPC's webmaster, via Paypal (go to, then to the 'send money' tab), at Please mark them 'TPC' or, if you wish to donate to defray Paddy's family's funeral expenses, just 'Paddy' or 'Donations to Paddy'.
