Folks I hadn’t done a full-on fund raising drive in two years– only
the notice above all posts asking people to hit the tip jar. Some of
you have contributed without an official “drive.” We tried earlier this year
ago and it was unsuccessful. Therefore I am forced once again ask you
to help keep this site alive with your donations.

are MANY expenses associated with running this site, computers, Wi-Fi
cards, travel to debates and conferences, subscribe to research, etc. I
pick up most of the expenses myself but I need some of your help offset
my expenses is through the donations of my readers. 

Also to be honest because of the lousy economy my freelance work has been cut back a bit. So fundraising as become even more important.

If only 1% of the
nearly 80,000 individual people who visit this site on an average month
chip in $18 (In Hebrew 18 is Chai or life) it will not only fund the
blog, but it will allow for me to purchase the software, syndicated research and upgraded hardware to keep the site going while increasing the reading experience.
