Cheers and Jeers: Monday

2 3 34

C&J Annual Fundraiser

Bless me, Father, for I have blogged. It has been 18 years, 6 months, and 3 days since my first C&J, and 15 months since my last fundraiser which—funny story—is my primary source of income.

My soul is once again on the block. To usher C&J into another year of being bought and paid for by you, the best online community on the planet, please consider making a one-time donation or signing up for a monthly contribution. After all, there is “no daily column that's more celebrated for excellence in mediocrity” than this one, and that’s a claim you can rely on, since it was given a green check mark by my research think tank BillyFact.

One time contribution: click here.
$5 monthly contribution: click here
$10 monthly contribution: click here
$20 monthly contribution: click here

Snail mail and thrilling conclusion below the fold...

To send a donation via snail mail, the address is:
Bill Harnsberger, 16 Pitt Street, Portland, ME, 04103.

If you're already a C&J monthly subscriber through PayPal
You don’t have to do anything but make sure your card is still active
and then feel good about your excellent investment.

We can't say it enough: thank you for splashing, whether daily or just occasionally. By keeping me off the streets you've made Portland's overworked municipal bloggercatcher very happy.

And now, the content you’ve paid for...some of it in color!


Cheers and Jeers for Monday, June 13, 2022

Note: Did Bill in Portland Maine start posting Cheers and Jeers in 2003 as part of a coup attempt to wrest control of Daily Kos from Markos Moulitsas and turn it into an online candy store and smoke shop? Join us at 8pm for our first of 429 live public hearings on public access cable channel 1. Sponsored by Hershey's and Chesterfields.
