Thank You For The Donations

I'll start tonight writing personal thank-yous, but I just wanted to say a general thank-you to everyone who's donated so far. You've all been very generous and it's very appreciated.

Well, when I say "all," I don't mean all. I mean the people who donated. Everyone else sucks.

The fundraiser so far:

Fundraiser Goal: $250,000

Funds Raised So Far: Six buck two bits, a coupon entitling me to a free map of Nebraska the next time I fill my tank at a BP gas station, and a sorta lame Transformers toy, "Rockhammer," a robot that transforms into a marble bust of actor Stacey Keach

Pretty good so far. But we can do better.

Oh, And... Yes, I know I'm very late on those poetry contest winners. I've had to divide it up into "Integrity" and "Loose Shit" -- some were in the spirit of "bad liberal poetry," other were just ridiculous and hilarious -- and I've got all the poems that placed decided. I just have to chose actual winners and runners-up. The rest are honorable mentions.

Although, who are we kidding, it was Monty by a mile, probably in both categories. Everyone already knows that.

I kind of have to apologize in advance -- there were so many good ones it pains me to have a brief list of winners. A good deal of work went into some of them. But... well, it was a contest, and I had to pick the ones I liked best. Hopefully no one will off themselves for not placing. I especially feel bad about the longer, rhyming ones -- you know, almost actual poems -- that didn't make the cut, but I have to go with my gut.
