Now, I promise, this won't become hectoring -- I'm only going to remind you about our Charity of the Month at the first, 15th, and end of the month.
But it occured to me -- although donations are coming in at a decent pace for the Army Emergency Relief Fund, I worry that by linking your donations to your perceived value of my writing, I'm missing money from the people who come here and hate me.
So, a quick addition -- I will personally MATCH whatever you people donate to families of soldiers in need. You think I'm a talentless hack? Write the bigger check, and suck me dry of my ill-gotten gains!
Now back to your regularly scheduled snark. And don't think about how, in the richest nation on earth, families of soldiers risking their lives and dying thousands of miles from home have to scramble to pay their mortgages or buy food for their kids. You know, just zone out. As if you're on vacation. On your ranch.
